It doesn't stick you in the eye like lots of HDRs do. So that's good. Just wondering: did you use multiple shots or faux HDR from a single shot? Blending moving objects is tough across multiple shots. You have fountains in this one. Did you use long exposure too?

Gear: Kodak Instamatic, Polaroid Swinger. Oh you meant gear now. :rolleyes:​t (external link)
Editing ok

Based on the filename, I'd say he used 5 exposures for the merge. I like the shot and think it looks natural.

Not sure why HDR was used here.

Seems like you could have gotten this shot out of a single exposure with no need for HDR? Certainly 5 exposures seems like immense overkill for this shot. Single shot HDR might have been enough if you really wanted to go the HDR route, and that would prevent any artifacts related to ghosting/camera motion between exposures.
