It seems to me the pic is flat looking. While HDR gives details in both ends (highlites and shadows) that flattens an image. Some punch should be put back in to give the pic some life. I did an auto contrast and then a bit of Exposure in Photoshop and it made a big difference.

Could you post it? I'd like to see what you did.

I incline to agree with Bynx & I'd very much like to see what it looked like before it was tonemapped.

In particular, I think the picture looked flat because the HDR process lightened up the areas of the deck under the overhanging roofs.

I've made some quick (and rough) changes with Photoshop trying to illustrate what I mean. -

No matter how it's photo shopped, it's still one "hell-of-a-house." (Gigantic and complex. It must have 30+ rooms and maybe lots of secret hiding places.)
