    The HDR here makes the entire shot seem blurry/soft/out of focus. You should clean your sensor as well as they may be causing the spots in the sky.

    Not going to lie, I think HDR works much better in color. B&W HDR is just not as effective to my eyes.

    It is a good start. Now I think you may see that this stuff is an art and may take some time for you to perfect your style.
    Keep at it and you will be a pro in no time.

    Be careful in composing your shots, HDR is no substitute for good photography.

    When you spend so much time on one photo in order to create an HDR version of it, you ought to have spend the additional 15 seconds to clone out the dirt spots in the sky. Clean your sensor would be the even more sensible act, but who am I to judge, with a sensor sooo dirty... but you'd never see the dirt spots in photos I present to others!

    And can we see the colour version, please?

    ETA: Not "my" sensor is dirty. Erm ... the one in my camera is! ;-)
