Frankly speaking it is not really a HDR photo but manual blend. I hardly ever do manual blends because I prefer the look of tone-mapped or fused images but this was a rare case when I couldn’t get this image right otherwise than to blend the 5 exposures manually.
You might argue that it’s a bit too dark. Maybe, but I like it this way 🙂
