Maybe you were trying to show the chaos, clutter, and smoggy grayness that can be found in LA, having lived there myself, but I think that most viewers would prefer to see a different story -- also, less in-your-face poles would be better, and this image doesn't demonstrate HDR much.

This is a fairly good example of what can be done with HDR. However the subject is pretty plain, and uninteresting. Its also way too busy. I cant find anything of interest as a main focal point.

Seems a bit too busy. But I think that could very well be the point, seeing your title. It definitely makes this interesting to look at - I want to stare at it until I can see every detail! Looks a bit too yellowish overall maybe?

Nice effort using HDR to show the dark section of the street, but the photo is just not very interesting.

This shot lacks any obvious subject, nor does it evoke any emotion. Although it does show HDR, this shot can not stand on that alone.

I find this shot too busy, with nothing that really catches my attention. This doesn't really tell me a story about LA.

I can see the HDR processing, but the composition seems way too busy.

Just needs a bit more of a punch, perhaps boosting the contrast would make it less 'flat'.
