Give me a little time.  I'm out of town with a pretty slow connection.  As soon as everything is up on DropBox, I'll put up links.

OK, here we go....

A lot of you already know I'm not very smart when it comes to these types of forums/technology/processing, etc.  When I open the provided RAW links for these HDR comps, they automatically pop up in ACR in PSE9.  I now have LR4.  How do I open/save the links to LR without having to go through PSE?

Suka, I assume you have those shots stored somewhere on your computer? (like in a Downloads folder or something?)
Just open up LR and when you hit Import, you can direct it to where those raws are being kept.
I'm not sure but I THINK you can open up ACRs preferences and tell it to NOT open up raws with PSE by default if you want LR to start doing it for you?
/waits for more knowledgable folks to answer
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

My workflow is to import the files into LR to view them rather than double-clicking them when they have downloaded. This avoids any of my other programs (PS etc.) opening them up and possibly altering them.

HTH  :)

I've never dealt with RAW files - how to I edit them in Elements 10, and then play with the HDR? Sorry, I know this might be a no brainer, but, i just can't seem to get it down.

Were these pic's difficult to work with to everyone else?

I had small challenges but nothing too rash. Of course I used every HDR program I had until I got what I liked. Did I miss those sun flares or did you add them in?

OK . . . strictly layman here. And assuming your on Windows and not a Mac. Right click on the RAW file in the explorer window of the folder they're stored in. Choose "Open with >" from the drop down list. At the bottom of the list it should say something like "Choose default program..." In the dialogue, if it's there, choose Lightroom 4. If it's not there, then choose the Browse... button below. Navigate to the Lightroom program folder on your computer (depending on your version it would be something like this:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4) . . .  and choose the exe. file, which looks like the icon of the application itself. Also denoted (in the Type column of the explorer window) as Application.
Click on this icon and it will join the others in the "Open with" dialogue. Make sure that you click on the Lightroom app icon in the dialogue and then check "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file". Click "OK". Now you RAWS will automatically open in LR4  8)  :o

Here's my general workflow....

Take the RAW files and export them as full resolution JPG's.
Bring these into Photomatix (you can get a free trial version), and edit them there for HDR.
Save as a full resolution JPG.
Take this tonemapped photo, along with the original component photos into Photoshop to do some cleanup.
Save final version as JPG.

This will help a lot...

And then I did a little tutorial here that will go beyond the Stuck in Customs tutorial above.
