I like the pano - All the interesting building shapes makes for a nice photo - stitched nicely as well - barely noticeable. However, I don't see the HDR effect applied here. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing - most think HDR's are nice if it doesn't look like a HDR. Having said that, what exactly did you bring out in the HDR that a normal exposure wouldn't do?

Note the sun, I think a normal exposure would be very contrasty with extreme dark and bright areas. If anything, I think the processing might be slightly evening out that difference too much making it look a little flat.

As popo said, the sky in the right would be overexposed if it wasn't HDR. The area to the left of the pano didn't really need HDR, but it brought back some detail and it helped reducing the noise in the darkest areas.

@popo:I just noticed that the image is a bit flat. I also noticed an issue with the color balance of the sky accross the image, so I will upload a new version soon

*EDIT*
