Great report! I really, really, appreciate the HDR shots. Nice work. What program are you using? Do you typically use only 3 exposures with a +/1 eV bracket? Are you layering to get the different effects in different parts of the image? I've played around some using Photomatix but I've never produced anything quite that good.
Also dig your KLR. I hope to some day get mine looking that nice. Cheers.
