Could you elaborate a bit on the composite process?

First of all I want to say that I'm only 3 Years in photography and making small steps in PP.

I was lucky to have my camera with me that day. It was heavy snowing and me with other workers went home early. So I could enjoy walking home and taking picks.
I take 3 shots with exposure bracketing.

Thouse 3 shots were processed in photomatix to get one tiff image with fine detail and smooth light. Also I got same 3 shots processed in photomatix to get one inage with maximum contrast.

I opened images in photoshop and playing with opacity I create one image I like most and add curve layer to set the white and black points. Then Hue layer and adjustment colour layer to set everything as I like. Put a copy of background to multiply mode with color balance layer all in group with mask to adjust some better look mostly to the center object. Then I added some fog, light the center, and increase some overall detail. Finally I desaturate the part above the roof cos it was orange part of another building and I didn't want to see it in my image. Above it all I added the layer with white dots to make it feel more winter.
