Experimenting with HDR

After viewing numerous wonderful HDR works on RedBubble I decided I would like to try it. I have been trying three different programs so far. Can anyone recommend a good one and provide details how you make the image look like a painting.
Examples are barbershop by Mike Savad and numerous other artists.

I know about taking different exposures, I would like to know what the best program is for making HDR images.

Oct 11 Please see the new experimantal work I have uploaded and let me know what you think, how can I improve the image and so on.

Oct 30 I have come to enjoy creating HDR images, and slowly amd getting better at getting good worksof art. My newest works are cascade moutain and Vermillion

Thanks
Christopher
