This is an extremely effective image, however I think the amount of blur you have added is a touch too much to be convincing (a little less blur and a touch of desaturation in this area shold get the same effect) and the masking where it ends, particularly around the small wall, needs a bit more work.
I only mention this because I think you potentially have a very fine picture here.

Have to agree. My initial thoughts were this looks fantastic, but the more you look at it the DOF looks unrealistic as you'd expect to see the steps trailing off at some point.
Still liking it though.

Hi Eric and Colin.
Thank you for taking the time to study this image and pass on a constructive critique. I was so pleased with the shot I didnt put my usual critical eye over it. Thanks again for pointing it out.

I think the eye struggles a little bit to make sence of this HDR image pin sharp foreground and right into the centre then all of a sudden depth of field just stops dead , When it should be gradual. Think the background should be sharp too probably overdone on the blur tool perhaps cheers kev
