    5 shot hdrs were taken and merged into a very bland tonemapped hdr in nik hdr pro. they were then brought into topaz adjust for further tweaking and given a look thats different than the typical hdr
     
  4. Very nice use of Topaz.
    The color and details in the last two make good use of the tool's capabilities.
    Just a suggestion, I would remove the person in the red coat in the second one, pretty distracting - I actually blew it up to 200% to see if the person was breaking in. :) 
    You might also want to work on the perspective on the last photo the right side is leaning in a bit too much.

    tooo funny on the red guy.. actually its one of those perspectives i just can straighten well. there is always something leaning no matter how i try.
     
  6. FWIW, I spent about 2 minutes in CS3 and got it pretty straight. I used the "distort" tool.
