There are a lot of HDR merging programs around and the only major competitive difference that Expose 2 has over its competitors is the batch process. All other features are either well known or available on other programs.
Where does that leave Expose 2? It's a tricky question. The main thing to do is look at the price and consider whether you'd use that feature enough to warrant the price. For low traffic HDR photographers, we think you wouldn't but if you're a high volume HDR user then it could be a god send. Once the files are merged, you can reopen them and perform all the adjustments you need before saving them as a file extension other programs understand.
It's currently on a 30 day trial so try it, you might like HDR Expose 2. Just keep an eye out for those tricky highlights that the program struggles with and don't even try to do anything else with your computer when it's rendering.
