Tone Mapping and High Dynamic Range

I’ve just begun to dip my toe in the HDR/Tone Mapping water. I haven’t taken any bracketed exposures specifically for this process, so I’ve processed this one from the RAW file prior to processing with Photomatix – this makes it Tone Mapped rather than a proper HDR, but the effect is quite pleasant.
