Looking for feedback on 1st work

I've been experimenting a bit with HDR following all the good advice from this forum.
Here's one attempt of HDR on single image.

I'm looking for feedback from you :-)

Some details about it:
-Shooted in raw w/Canon XS and standard lens EF-S 18-55
-Exposure 20 seconds
-Tonemapped with Photomatix 4.0
-Topaz Adjust and minor adjustments in PS

Thank you!

Re: Looking for feedback on 1st work

It's got a lot going for it with rich colours and an HDR look. Three things jump out at me. The white dot just above the centre, the way the verticals towards the edges lean out and also there is a lot of foreground. Although they're not HDR related issues they may be things that could be tweaked to improve the overall feel of the image.

Re: Looking for feedback on 1st work

The white dot above center is most likely the planet Venus, and may well be the object of the shot - verticals leaning don't bother me, but there is indeed too much foreground. The image could stand some cropping on the left and at the bottom to take care of the stairs, which I find distracting, the foreground, and the sliver of white at top left. I do find it bothersome that the verticals on the truck don't match the verticals on the buildings. All these criticisms deal with composition, not HDR look, which I find quite pleasant and not overdone.
