Sunderland Point HDR with Orton

Thought I'd have another go at Orton. This was processed from a single RAw file into a pseudo hdr file then tonemapped with Photomatix. I then opened it in Photoshop, and created two duplicate layers, blended one as screen, then created another copy and added gaussian blur and blended this as multiply. I then sharpened the other layer with unsharp mask and merged the visible layers. I then sharpened the merged tiff a bit with smart sharpen. This is the 8 bit jpeg. I'm not sure about the image but I'm starting to get to grips with the Orton effect.
