Default The farm from my friend's house

This is the HDR picture I've felt comfortable posting.

This was taken at my friend's house last weekend. It was a beautiful day and the sun was approaching that golden hour. I used HDR Darkroom to process it.

I hope you enjoy and feel free to give suggestions and comments...

Im not sure what you did. But it isnt HDR. There is too much contrast and the blacks are too black. The idea of HDR is to give you some detail in all areas of the photo.

I like the final effect - whether or not it's what was intended - the high contrast and yellowing sky on this subject give the effect of an old photo that been discovered in a box under a bed after years of poor storage.

There is HDR processing in there but I suspect a lot more besides - the lightening of the shadow around the tractor wheel shows the HDR effect but it's at quite a coarse level and there should be more crisp detail available in the tractor wheels if you want it.
