You can not do the combineing of the images as I think you are expecting. You can duplicate your image three times and on the second layer > image > invert then change blending mode to Vived Light. On the top layer Change the blending mode to Color. Now on the second layer > Filter > Blur > Gausion Blur and blur till you get an efect you like. Dose not work on all images. You might want to try this also. I did a tutorial on this at:
Learn what you have and what you have learn well .
Learn from the mistakes of others , you will not live long enough to make them all your self .

You could duplicate your layer, blur the top one and give it a low alpha.

That's how I do it.

Load each exposure into a layer, and paint layer masks to show areas where you want to show a particular exposure. Basically you pick the properly exposed layer for each area of the image. It's time consuming, but this is what HDR applications are doing.
