    I have Edited the sky to remove the halos from most of the photos.

    The sky in the second image looks awful.

    Apart from that, they are pretty cool images :)

    as I'm looking more, I do have some questions regarding composition on 3. The bottom and left corners of the building are cropped off, while there is a lot of space (including power lines) on the right corner. is this the composition you were going for?

    On the right of the castle there where modern villas so they will be ugly in the photo. And I also didn't want to center the castle. The power lines on the right came out when removing halos.

    I've got to be honest, I'm not too keen on any of them, the sky looks noisy on most of them or goes from being very bright to very dark. The first and third look the closest to being realistic but the third one has a funny green line going down the right hand side of the building.

    I'm a firm beliver that true HDR cannot be done from one exposure as it introduces too much noise (especially at %100 viewing, on websize you can sometimes get away with it), and you can't capture a high enough dynamic range in one exposure to do it justice - if you could there would be no need for a HDR function in software to merge multiple images.

    Sorry for sounding so negative, as digital creations they are interesting but as true HDR they don't do it for me. I've just been looking in to HDR for ages now and its very rare that anyone manages to use it to its full (and true) effect, which is to produce an image that is correctly exposed for a varying amount of light sources in one image so as to see it as our own eyes do. Most people see it as a way to create funky effects for some reason.

    I think you'd be on to something if you did some more with multiple exposures though :)
