Another hdr experiments
Lens: Tammy 27-75mm f/2,8 & SIGMA 10-20MM Camera: Pentax K10D Photo Location: ITALY 

I know many of you guys do not favor HDR a lot but as far as Photography is an art and varies as per perception of individuals, I want to share for whom favoring HDR or wishes to understand HDR. Perhaps we may break prejudices of some friends who are against HDR.

All constructive critics are welcome...

These are excellent -- thank you for sharing! HDR or no you have done a lot of PP here to get a particular look... no harm in that as they are not pretending to be "documents".

However, some retouching I would do to improve them:

#1 Correct distortion which rather bends my eye around. Verticals not straight.

#2 Desaturate the no entry sign as it draws the eye and overwhelms the image.

#4 Ditto the red window.

Cheers!

I'm still not a fan of HDR from a photographic standpoint...but from an art standpoint I've got no problem with it. Your shots are very interesting. The effect you achieve reminds me very much of hand colored (watercolors) B/W prints.

I like the processing a lot, good work; would maybe benefit from a slight desaturation (particularly in the red channel) to add to the rustic feel of an old town.
