HDR Tone Mapping with Layers in Photoshop

HDR Tone Mapping with Layers in Photoshop
First, you need to find out which layer is causing the ghosting. Enable and disable the visibility of the two layers inside the Tone Mapping group. Once you see it disappear, that is the layer that is causing the artifact.
Select the layer and enable back the visibility. Click on the a button to add a layer mask.
Select the Eraser tool (E) from the toolbar then set the hardness to 0%. You can adjust the hardness by right clicking anywhere in the image or, for older versions of Photoshop, set it in the Brushes palette (Window > Brushes).
Erase the affected area. That’s all there is to it!
