HDR Tutorial, Step 2, identifying problems

This is what the image looks like after processing in Photomatix. We can see that it's ok, but there are some problems, e.g we can see pink / magenta lines along the side of the mountain, and there are also some green lines there. Those are Photomatix artifacts. The clouds between the mountains are also over exposed.

There are also some other things that I find disturbing, like the red leafes under the bush on the left side, and the small stones in the lower right corner.

The leafes and the stones are removed using cloning.

The magenta/pink and green lines that are artifacts from Photomatix.
