I for one will say it doesnt matter. You should be asking is this a good picture or not. I think its a nice shot with poor PP skills. I hope it doesnt become the new game of the future.....guess whether its HDR or not. Its the final results and not the route to get there that matters.

The highlights are overexposed, so if it is HDR, the brackets could have been done better. The high saturation has the HDR look, but overall contrast is too high.

The vignetting looks as if the shot was taken through a telescope,but the overall sharpness and DOF give it the appearance of a short focal length lens. Unless the vignetting is from post-process.

I had seen some photo's online that people referred to as "tilt shift" but I was wondering if that is the same as HDR. The tilt shift photo's did indeed look like a model and that was what I was trying to get here.

Tilt shift is a focus trick used by a lens called Lensbaby. It gives a closeup macro look to an otherwise normal pic. Has nothing at all to do with HDR. http://www.lensbaby.com/lenses.php?g...Fdx05QodUT3Zkw

Yes, tilt/shift was used primarily by architectural photographers to compensate for perspective distortion caused by close up shooting of buildings. It allows you to straighten the photo in camera, which was really useful for film, and works well with digital as well, since the correction occurs optically, and doesn't entail the edge softening that comes from editing.

A lot of the white on buildings looks blown out. If it is HDR it has missed the mark.
