Here's a 7 exposure HDR shot hand held from the observation deck of the Empire State building. Looking south towards Hudson Bay with the Hudson River on the right. I just did a quick job of processing this image with out putting alot of effort into it. I'd say the HDR process really helped to capture the scene.
D3s, 24-70 F/2.8@ 24mm-F/4 ISO 6400 Center shutter speed was 1/90 sec. Photomatix.
Nice job for only a little effort. I like that it doesn't look overly processed. I also noticed you shot this at 6400 ISO with your d3S. That's amazing. I have had smiliar results with my D800 but not that high of iso.
