    Awesome use of the HDR and congrats on the tonemapping as well. It has a very realistic look to it. The only downside I would say is that there are blown out highlights which HDR is supposed to help correct.

    No no not the lights I was talking mostly of the door and some of the stuff on the wall from the door. This almost looks as though it was a commercial shot. Do you work there? If so consider maybe trying to block the door with something to eliminate the blown areas.

    naw, i dont work there. i have a real job :p

    they just had a big empty seating area and i was there with a big party for lunch, so decided to try my hand at it. they had a lot of random light coming in from windows and doors. indoor HDR's are probably best done at night, or with certain lights blocked.

    see how you learn by doing??? :)
