After a long time trying, I think I've got the hang of the sort of HDR that I like - a result that looks better than a single original exposure, but is less obviously HDR.

Unfortunately the need to keep the file size small so that it can be posted here has resulted in reducing the picture's resolution.

G'day Herb

And it looks to be a nice, comfortable 'street where I live'
As to the HDR - it works for me re- dynamic range & details

After doing the tonemapping you should put the pic through Photoshop for sharpening and a bit of contrast. The tonemapping flattens the image somewhat and you have to bring some of that back. Your image seems a bit soft and dreamy quality to it. But its very well done nonetheless.

I think it looks a bit ethereal. Almost like the Orton Effect.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've treated the picture using Photoshop Unsharp Mask. It's certainly worked, but at the same time the ethereal effect (that I must admit I rather like) - has gone!

Much better after using Unsharp Mask.
