I like HDR Efex and Photomatix. I don't really think your photo needs HDR treatment though. I find it most useful in situations where I need to capture maximal dynamic range.

Earlier this year I shot a series of three shots and edited them in Lightroom just with manipulation of sliders, Photomatix and HDR Efex. These were the results.

HDR Efex


With all of these programs you can choose how surreal to make your image. I usually try to avoid pushing thing to unnatural levels.

By the way, I hope you don't mind my mentioning that you have some dirt on your sensor...
Thank you for your added comments. Yes I noticed the spot. Thanks. I will clean things up.
