Same emotional reaction from a Mumbai person. These are all gorgeous architecture of Mumbai. I'm sure that the originals are much much better (looking at your list of gigs). Could you please post them?

The originals are much better. I've tried to work on BMC Building. The first one is the original with pp and the next one with HDR. I still like the original. Hope this helps...

I think they just need some more processing beyond the Photomatix step you've already done. I think most people adjust them further to remove the 'washed-out' look.

Alternatively, if there is any misalignment of the images it can cause problems but a few of your images actually have a nice histogram and don't really need multiple exposures. For example, this is another version of the single original you posted above which has no clipped highlights or shadows:

That's my AutoHDR program (www.autohdr.co.uk) - very easy to use but it only works on a single picture. I think the settings I used here were Detail(10), Strength(10), Contrast(5), Saturation(6), Shadows(3), Highlights(5) adn no smoothing.

Martin's program on the originals look the best here. his version of that first shot is really nice and shows off the nice image you took the best.

when using the HDR programs, be sure to read / watch the tutorials online to learn what the sliders do, then you can learn to prevent the washed out look, or the inverted contrast look, giant halo look, that can plague people's first attempts at HDR.

That reminds me - I really should put some documentation together for it...
