This doesn't seem very HDR-ish at all. Maybe fix the WB a bit as she seems a little too orange. Fun shot!

Agreed. I would say it looks very much like a normal snapshot and not an HDR. Her skin tone rightfully says need to be tweaked as well so she is not so orange. Maybe it is just me but from the perspective you took this photo from of your fiance I don't think there really is a need for HDR. When I think of an HDR portrait I think something like of an amazingly colorful background of the sky and a perfectly exposure subject (with no artificial lights involved).

i see what you guys are saying... i am pretty new to the photography thing and am learning as i go. The reason i chose to use hdr was that all of my photos were pretty flat due to poor lighting outside, etc. As i lack a decent flash (and diffuser, etc.) and did not have a tripod, i thought i could get a better balanced photo by bracketing and making an hdr. Here is a slightly adjusted photo. Any better?

I like the adjusted version way better. The image isn't so orange and the tones are smoother.

You don't need a flash and all that stuff to get a photo with good lighting...
