How do you get rid of that? Just adjust it differently and see if it'll go away? I'm not sure if you can do it in elements. I would youtube it and see.
There's a whole lot more going on here than halo problems. The entire HDR appears extremely over-exposed... and what has been called a "halo" in the sky looks more like a blown-out highlight.
My honest opinion: hit the drawing board again and see what you can come up with... then post a somewhat better attempt. This HDR suffers from so many problems... a critique at this point isn't worth the forum space.
Not trying to put you down, seriously... HDR can be tricky in the beginning, there's no question. But from a technical standpoint -that is, looking for the features expected out of an HDR such as expanded detail and more clarity in shadow and highlight areas- this particular piece is largely a failure.
Given the wide-ranging problems here, the best piece of advice I could offer for your next attempt is to bias your exposure bracket closer to the underexposed reaches of its range. For example, if you took this shot at +2EV / 0EV / -2EV... try underexposing by a stop or so for a bracket more like +1EV / -1EV / -3EV.
I say this because the only explanation I can think of as to why there are blown out highlights in the sky is that none of the shots in your bracket were underexposed enough to properly expose the brighter portions in the first place.
