This is the morning after a fantastic night out in Temple Bar, Dublin.
Lots of hangovers looking for a full Irish breakfast.....
Taken on a 'cheap' compat then tonemapped in Photomatix

This is a nice image but needed to be a bit more contrasty and vibrant in the colours so I've uploaded a modification for you to see.
This is a really nice shot and for me the HDR is spot on as it is often over done by increasing contrast and saturation/vibrancy. I do agree with the other comment about verticals, they should be vertical but it is personal preference and depends what you are after as the final look/feel of the final image. As far as the telephone wire is concerned again it a personal preference but it is a street scene and it is part of it so I would have left it in as street scenes are what they are - street scenes. I take the point about format but again it your choice. You could argue you have used the rule of thirds with most interest as stated in the bottom third but have used the rest of the frame to enhance those verticals. For me it loses something when it is cropped.
I like what you've achieved here and I must admit on more than one occasion with the "morning after" feeling the building's certainly felt like they were leaning
I agree with Jon, I think you could boost the colours a touch and I agree with Frank and Ian about the verticals, but should the morning after be all prim and proper or should you look at things through squinted eyes and just wish you could go back to sleep, sorry I digrees a little . I have posted a mod where I have altered the verticals, boosted colour and contrast, slightly also sharpened a touch.
A fine processing 10+++++
i like the look. lesley
Its a good shot of the "morning after". The processing is quite good, though some whites for me are a little too grey. Theres a nice sense of the Sun attempting to break through in places.
Shooting slightly downwards has converged verticals, and they dome bother me at all, its a street scene, well shot. One risk you can run into with straightening verticals is that you can compress the figures in the shot, as in one of the mods. What the focus on the verticals has done though is detracted from one issue, - that paper bag stuck on the foot of one of the guys, and imo its better removed. Ive loaded a mod with this done, some brightening of whites, and cropped some space from the top.
The image content is good and I don't mind the verticals. I don't like the tones too much - seem very flat and 'wrong' to me, but then I rarely like the results of HDR type treatment. It's a personal thing, I know, but I'm not really sure the tonal range present warranted HDR. You can clearly see the brighter areas at major tonal changes - sky line - and that always worries me.
I had a look at the modifications and feel that I really like Marks photo - the only thing that looked better in the last modification was the removal of the paper bag. Well done Mark
