Seattle Skyline

This is my first attempt at HDR photography. When I went to Kerry Park to get the famous Seattle skyline picture you see on post cards, I was quite disappointed with the quality of the visibility and the general exposure of pictures I took. So I decided to take three bracketed pictures with the idea that I'll be able to do something better by merging them. This is the result. I tried to get something close to reality rather than something that doesn't look natural.
