That's a good start!  I do mine by bracketing manually.  Instead of explaining it, here a video from Tony.  I pretty much do what he does.  Mostly, though, I use 7 exposures and go two stops between.




And if you go to the HDR section here in SDP, you'll see other's efforts as well.

That is indeed a very good start! The horizon looks slightly tilted but it could be an optical illusion because of the placement of the elements.

Great subject matter and a nice job though I would crop the fence out on the right hand side of the scene, but then I have no PP skills

Nice, not overcooked, done well!

Photos are a moment in time, that can only be captured once.
