I'm afraid this is HDR when it really doesn't work. It is very obvious, white lines round strong tonal changes and a very over flat image. However, you are experimenting ,and that is what the hobby is all about.

The only really good HDR images don't look HDR! For me, a much over used technique.

IMHO if you want to take these kind of shots, get a decent grey grad and do it in one exposure.

HDR needs a lot of artistry to make it look like it isn't HDR, very few achieve it. Better to concentrate on getting the shots right at taking time than try to recover them later. Besides, two or three pics here would be sufficient for HDR. I'm with Paul on this one.
