Good, thought-provoking post.
Very creative construction for an HDR - and the result sure works for me. Would be curious to know what the "too HDRish" in camera results looked like.

What ISO setting, shutter speed did you use?
Nice image, has an illustration effect to it.

Bobo, I really like the second image. I would play with this one some more.

Thanks Mark, John, Karm.
Unfortunately the camera generated HDRs were deleted. The first source image is the only one remaining as it was the most natural looking one of the lot.
Setting for the source images were
1/20, f5.6, iso 400 for the first
1/8, f5.6, iso 400 for the second
Both at 135mm, hand-held.

I get it now bobo. You focused on the window and then on the background and combined the two shots. (Not an HDR)
Nice idea for a blend. Works well. You even have a hard edge to blend to.

Hey Bobo, I like the idea, and execution. It does something weird to me though, and I can't explain it. It's almost like I can't focus on it, even though everything is IN focus. Weird. Probably just me, and I can't explain if it's an effect of knowing that it's an impossible situation to begin with, or if not being able to clearly look at it makes me realize it's an impossible situation.
I wonder if anyone else has this happen to them, or if my wife is correct, and that I'm 'weird'.

I agree with Steve, it's not a HDR

Sorry for not responding - have been away a couple of days.
Thanks guys for your responses.
Yes, it is not a HDR - only a composite of 2 images.
Steve - yes the hard edge helped but the masking was a bit touch and still not perfect.
Maybe I will try the camera's multiple exposure function to see if that is able to merge better.
Andrew - I get the same weird feeling. So there are 2 weirdos here.

The interior views are too toned down to be "too HDR'ish", I think it's the blue-grey cast that gives it an otherwordly look, but its different and it looks good.
