Agree with everything said. Also it's a good idea when shooting a space that's relatively dark but has windows to REALLY tone down the highlights to avoid blowouts. In all three my eyes went immediately to the brightest spots which is not what you want.
Also use the straightening tool. Can't really tell on the 1st one but the last two are crooked.

Id love to see these before the HDR. I Love Kings Park and I'm sure you worked hard on these. But, sometimes less is MORE I wondered what one would look like in B&W, so i tried it. Not Awesome...but easier on the eyes. Just tone it down a bit and you might like them even more.

Posted by MissBlackDollia I thought these were fantastic. The HDR is a little harsh, but the first thing I thought was "wow, these are really good."
Too much is too much. The dead giving away is little or no near pure black zones. To do HDRs right you absolutely need calibrated monitor/flow through. For that matter you should it have for processing any image.
Not capturing enough dark zone images will always yield an unworkable HDR image set. Better to yield on the side of caution and take as many images over the entire exposure range and sort them out latter. HDRs are tricky.
