I posted those in the critique corner but I just discovered there was an HDR section so here it is:

2 HDRs of the same image, one in color and the other in BW, let me know what you think.

I like the first one, I am still a rookie so I may not be able to tell you why in tricky terms, but #1 pops in my eye, and #2 although kinda cool falls short of #1. Perhaps if you had two different images with the different techniques that I might have a debate. But imo the colored one is best.

Over cooked to me too, but I could deal with it better if the buildings were popped out a little cleaner. The skies, I can deal with.

Aside from the haloing around the building on the right, I think there's too much contrast since the scene is so busy. Maybe you could turn down the contrast and mellow out the colors a bit.

Here's a quick edit as an example of what I mean.

I found the above not natural colour... specially the building looks like a bit of underburn or should I say washed up.
