    I went to Union Station in KC last week to shoot. I've been practicing HDR a lot and this was the perfect place to give it a go. I love love this shot, I am actually thinking about printing it.

    Its very yellow. I like the shot, but the hue is too much for my tastes. Good location choice though, the HDR works well for it.

    I agree that it looks way too yellow. Made a quick color shift that I believe skews it back closer to reality without losing the over warm tones of the image.

    Steve's edit does help. I think the real culprit was your white balance. For HDR's it helps to shoot in RAW so you can change the white balance post shooting. The HDR process takes colors that are present and really highlights them, so if it's a color you don't want you're stuck with trying to balance it out or just desaturating if it's a JPEG.

    What about this? It kind of seems boring next to the other more dramatic versions.

    I normally HATE the cartoony looking HDR's, but this one works!

    Your words

    And I agree.
    How about posting your middle shot so we can see where we are starting from?
