    This doesn't look like HDR. It just looks like eye-blinding white.

    Looks good.
    Even the shadows are pointing the right way.

    Well Done.

    Its so bright it looks like u just crawled out of a dark cave, but if u happened to crawl out of a dark cave it would be a really cool image :p. Don't worry though i still like it and think its cool.

    Check out HDRShop, it would help a lot. But this does not look like a proper HDR image. Does it even have the proper highlight ranges for calculating IOR?
