I would not say you did a bad job at all. If I were to ever do any HDR processing it would be an attempt to try and make it not look like HDR.

A user by the name of zig123 has done some beautiful HDR landscape processing...

The original middle picture was very orange all around, that was what caught my eyes. Take a look at the attached file.
Thanks for the info on AutoHDR, free is always good!

You should really give exposure bracketing with the e-pl1 in sequential shooting mode a try. With a steady hand, tripod or the camera rested on something you can achieve three five or seven shots in a row that can be combined for HDR.

Nice. Almost looks like a painting.

Thanks, James! The original on the lagoon picture is good to begin with. HDR gives it a pastel look making it resembling a painting. You hit it right on the nail. This ones comes out better than the first 3 pictures because of a better original.
