Looks good, natural looking.. colors are popping but not too much.

The only negative is the halo effect around the tree tops and bus roof.

If you post your RAW file I will try to replicate in Affinity and see if it creates the same halo,
which is generated by the software you are using. BTW, what software are you using?

Thanks!
Andrew

A creditable result for a first try Keep up the good work!

N.B. Look at your histogram (either here or in your image editor). I think you need to tweak the white point a bit

Would like to see the originals as not really a subject that would necessitate HDR treatment

For your evaluation please..

The first is Google Nik HDR. Pleasant looking. Default profile picked, and some minor adjustment on the sliders.

This one is Topaz Adjust filter with HDR option. Picked default profile and minor adjustment on the sliders. I think to me, this one looks more natural.

Different softwares and filters will interact differently. You kinda have to play with them to see what gives the results you like the most.

Both done with Affinity Photo as the host, original JPG as posted above (lower DR than the RAW of course) was used.

Andrew

For most pictures that I do HDR, Topaz seams to consistent results that are most appealing.

I also have Machinery, but UI is too advanced for me, too many presets to pick from and final result has bad noise.

Was wanting to try Aurora but it crashed my Windows. Photomatix results are not near as good as Topaz. Photolemur does a really good job and has a slider for overall effect, but no advanced mode to tweak.

For simplicity, options and results.. Topaz is 90% my go-to HDR filter.
