What size is where you can see the difference with three shots?

...from A2 upwards you notice the smoothness in the sky - remember, all this time I have always only spoke of this in terms of Black & White photography - I have not looked colour.

Interesting thread, must say however that 32bit files are not handled  correctly in Lightroom. Colors are not shown correctly on screen and in print. This must have an effect on black and white as grey’s are just part of the colorspace.

To Alan,

Even though I've never checked this fellows videos it only took about a minute to download this one so I can view it at my own leisure.  Therefore I might check more than the one mentioned here and decide if they are worth the time.

Yes Slo: I take 3 photos -2EV, 0.0EV, +2EV. From Lightroom I go to "Merge to HDR Pro in PS". In HDR Pro I set it to 32-bit and uncheck "Tone In ACR". It ends up in PS as a 32-bit TIFF. Save. It appears in Lightroom as a TIFF.
In Library Mode, I go to "Library" in the menu bar and select Convert to DNG. It converts it to a DNG. Check 32-bit as per Screenshot.

You now go ahead and process the image as you normally would. (In Lightroom! The moment you send it back to PS it becomes 16-bit.)

All I did in the above pics of the church was as described in the process above then I selected the 0.0EV photograph and synced the adjustments (with the 32-bit DNG) and ended up with the two examples I posted.

Simple!

It's not in the Tools tab/pulldown.

Go to the Photo tab, then Edit In in the pulldown
You'll see the Merge to HDR Pro in PS option there.
Note that if you only select 1 image you'll see it but it will be greyed out

You can also right click on any one of your selected images and find the Edit In option listed

I was able to make headway thanks to your advice. I am facing another problem but I will first strive to overcome then I may come back to ask for your help.
