Living Room Window

A tone mapped image looking out of my living room window. Does this image look natural or can you obviously tell that it is an HDR?
About the Photo
*Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS *Lens: EF-S 18-55mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 IS *Shutter Speed: N/A *Aperture Value: ƒ/22 *ISO: 100 *Focal Length: 18mm (28.8mm Equivalent)
I shot this on a tripod using mirror lockup, a polarizing filter, and a 2Sec. selftimer. This image in composed of 11 different exposures, one average exposure, seven 1 stop underexposers, and three 1 stop overexposures. I opened the RAW files in Photomatix Pro and tone mapped them to my liking. I then used ACR to polish up the 16 bit TIFF and opened it in CS4 where I did some burning of the backlit plants to make them appear more natural and used the sponge tool on them to bring out a little more saturation.
I have no idea why but CS4 won't convert my 16 bit TIFF file and I had to do it in Canon's Digital Photo Professional, does anyone know what went wrong?
