This is one of my few attempts at HDR, although I think its fun, most people dislike HDR, but hey here goes???

I disagree with your premise that most people dislike HDR. I think many people would agree that a well done HDR is almost universally appealing. it's the garish charicatures of real photographs that turn off many people. as far as the processing goes in your image, it's not obviously HDR, so I think you did well in that regard. That being said, it doesn't seem that it was particularly necessary for this scene, though I imagine that you were better able to bring out the details under the bridge.

Also, the pole in the lower left corner and the power line in the upper right corner really need to go.

Oh yes it is. :D I'm by no means saying that its a bad pic, just that the HDR processing is readily apparent (from the looks of the foliage to the brickwork on the bridge).

If I crop them out then the crop in my opinion would be too tight and might ruin the picture, have made this mistake in the past and it makes a world of difference getting the crop right
