Looks decent, although it displays many of the flaws of the HDR process. there seems to be a lack of sharpness round the edges, probably due to slight camera rotation between exposures. another result of this is the pronounced CA, particularly apparent on the left wheel.
Also, there's quite strong haloing around the trees. Skies seems to be a big problem when tone mapping, with haloing and noise being the worst offenders.
the house itself looks great though.

I am assuming this was taken with the 18-55 kit lens. If so, that would be the major culprit in the intense CA. I mean I am sure the HDR processing doesnt help at all, but the 18-55 has serious CA problems at the 18mm end. That's what really made me dislike that lens--it's pretty much useless at the wide end.
Anyway, thats a cool shot, it would have looked really good if taken with a different lens, but hey...
