What I really like about HDR imaging is that we can actually create photographs that look like what our eyes see. This shot is about half way between first view and eye/brain adjusted view. I decided to leave it at this intermediate stage for more of a contrasty image.
Processing: Seven images from -3 to +3 ev at 1 ev intervals processed in Nik HDR Efex Pro where I did heavy tone mapping to add lots of contrast and darken the shadows while still keeping the windows from being totally blown out. In Adobe Photoshop CS6, I used Shadows/Highlights to get an even deeper, dramatic look. I ended with High Pass filter for some subtle sharpening.
Equipment used: Nikon D700 with 50mm f/1.8 Nikkor lens, f/9.5, 800 ISO. Manfrotto 190XPROB with 486RC2 ball head.
