    hi I'm still trying to grasp how to get a photorealistic HDR so can only offer my 2 cents hee....

    the sky looks overdone, not too natural looking
    maybe can tweak the contrast in the temple a bit more since it's HDR, now seems a bit flat from the flare
    probably can make the colours more vibrant too

    thanks for sharing!

    watch the overblown sky in the background, a good HDR will have the sky and clouds correctly exposed. try also to avoid the distracting elements such as the HDB flats in the bg, and correct the building's verticals if possible. try shooting from other angles too and select the best one. colours can be made more vibrant by adjusting contrast and saturation.
