OK, try not to be TOO harsh... I'm nowhere near a pro photographer, I've still got a TON to learn, which I hope to do on this forum :)

First one was done at night with only 3 exposures in JPG. The daytime ones I was taking 9 exposures in RAW and I'm only using Photoshop CS5 to compose them, as its all I have. I plan on taking more and trying this again tomorrow on my trip to Yosemite, so any pointers would be appreciated.

Please forgive the trash cans in the background of the second shot, I was only trying out HDR, not trying to make a perfect picture. They are posted in the order I did them in.

Yea, got a bit of lens flare. Not sure how to avoid that, while keeping the street light in view. It was my very first attempt at HDR also.

These are some of the most challenging situations for HDR - trees against a bright sky. From my experience you have to decide if you are OK with the halos or would rather the trees went very dark and you use the HDR to open up some of the other shadows.

three ways to reduce flaring
1. do not shoot into lights and use a hood
2. correct the flaring in post processing
3. get better glass

not bad for the first try. HDR takes awhile to get a hang as you need experience to know what scenes will work and what wont work. so you need an idea of how you would process it in your mind before you even take it. not all scenes can be enhanced with HDR. If youre savy with photoshop, halos with trees shouldnt be a problem as you can fix it with PS.
