This was my first go at doing a HDR photo, please tell me what you think?

Nice first attempt.
Reduce the glow radius to reduce the holo effect at the top of the bridge and around the arches.
Would have been tempted, after using the HDR tool, to increase the shadowing on the near face of the bridge, just to make it a little darker.
And if you felt like something to do, I might also be tempted to remove the lens flare on the right of the image.
Hi I took out the lens flare and cropped out some of the wasted space in the F/G and turned back the shades on the dark side of the pier that are hidden from the morning sun.
Hope you like it, thanks for the mod. Chen.
There's no point saying otherwise, you have over done the HDR a lot. Correctly used, HDR should balance tones but not be obvious. I'm afraid you have the typical HDR halo and a very flat image.
In effect you have compressed the tonal range and removed all tones at the white and black end of the scale, giving that very pastel look.
You need to pull back a mile on your HDR settings, then, when you get it close, you need to go back into the image editor and correct contrast. I would be very careful with HDR and use it only when very necessary - many people seem to be using it as a fashion - it is a tool, and must be mastered.
