Default St Louis City Scape

I happened to visit St Louis in 2008. Here are two HDR pics taken in downtown.

These were taken in my friend's Canon SX 100 IS.

May be I did not do a proper HDR process. Let me try harder.

Ive seen a few variations of HDRs. Some good some not so good. So far, yours falls in the latter category.

It seems to me that the pictures have sort-of a weird color cast to them - is that the color you remember the scene having? I personally find it distracting as I prefer HDR's to look realistic, or if not realistic then pleasing. The way the software handled the color I think it looks strange. How many exposures were you using for the picture?

i think there is something going wrong with that particular piece of software, or some settings you picked along the way.

try out the trial of photomatix.
