I've always been picky about HDR processing. IMO, HDR can do more harm than good if not careful. These images are OK but they look over sharpened and absolutely flat (no shadows anywhere) except for the last one with some shadow under the bridge. I'd be curious to see how the originals look like.

Boy, I like the originals sooo much better! They have depth and, of course, look natural. Thanks for sharing.

I have to agree with Tullio. The originals look so natural and pleasing. I like the way certain colors draw your eyes, like the Swiss flags in the first, and the pink flowers in the second. While HDR makes everything the same brightness and flat.
