Request critique on HDR processing of a three exposure setup. My goal was to have the trees and mountains both appear properly exposed... Please give comments, tips

Ask yourself...is this how I remember it?

look pretty good but the shadows are still rather blocked up in the trees.
Perhaps you can lift the shadows a bit more without the HDR becoming too obvious.
Assuming 1 of your 3 exposures was long enough to get the details in the shadows.

Looks good!
How about exposure blending rather than HDR processing?

My guess is that your overexposed shot was not overexposed enough to get enough details from the shadows.
The white snow and shadowed foliage seem to be a dramatically high range scene to its possible to need more than just 3 exposures to get it right.
They key is to have one picture where the histogram is fully loaded to the right without touching the left part and one picture with the histogram fully loaded to the left without blown highlights, the overexposed shot makes sure you have detail in the dark areas and the underexposed shot makes sure you have no blown lights add whatever is in the middle and there you have your HDR.
