The rage these days seems to be to hand blend your brackets so I thought i would give it a quick try. I think i should have have focused on 3 instead of 5 as I had use more gradients to smooth my masks between layers as my hand adjustments were too harsh.

i think with a few more trys and refinements there is allot of promise for the hand blending vs the Photomatix route for some images. One thing I did is I tweaked white white balance and tint between exposures to give some added pop and depth.
