I guess I will be the first to offer some CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM...
First, not sure what is going on with image #1 and the large gray area in the upper left.
These images are a bit over-processed and consequently there is a noticeable edge on the 2nd image and the shadow areas are some other color. Not only do you not have any black/shadow area in 3, the over processing has made the sky a mess... Your composition and subject matter look good, just your process needs work.

What software are you using?

Sorry to be a little harsh...

I think Brad has given you some useful suggestions and comments. To be a bit blunt,the images you have posted don't really work (for me at least).
You say you are using a preset, I don't know which one?
If you want to try HDR you may wish to consider trying one of the programs often referred to in this HDR section - Oloneo HDRengine, Photomatix, SNS etc.
Most of these have a free trial version you can download and get the feel of how they work for you.
HDR software has come on a lot from when it was originally introduced and now gives you the opportunity to create images that range from very natural to full-on grunge effects.

You can try Luminance HDR it is free and run on Windows and Mac. Sourceforge "Project of the Month" in May 2012
http://qtpfsgui.sourceforge.net/
May be simpler to use than CS6 as it is a specialised tool.
As Brad said, maybe over processed.
Practice makes perfection, have fun!

What software did you use for your hdr processing? I prefer a more realistic look to landscape hdr images.
