2012.263 (A Song to Nature Fountain)

I took this last night after class, a 5 exposure hdr. The only reason I did it as hdr was because for my photography class, one part of our assignment was to bracket at +2, +1, 0, -1, and -2. Since I already had them bracketed, I figured I might as well process it thru hdr efex pro 2. I have taken a very similar photo like this before, the difference this time was that I was I had a lens that could go wide, 18mm and I had never done this hdr before. I wanted to see how hdr efex pro 2 handled the differences that would occur w/ the water in the fountain at the different shutter speeds and the brakelights of the cars that inevitably streak thru the frame on the street in the distance there. Looks pretty decent to me and doesn't look too unrealistic. I wanted as natural a look as I could get here.
