There are several layers to look at in this piece of art. The foreground is quite catchy for the eye. The small verandas from an old desolate-like building facing (on the far right) a newly unrbznized building with at least 20 stories is well-composed. Then a huge gap in "society" (at least how I see it) with just a small hill and few cars here and there... this all overlooks a wonderfully captured horizon showing a busy downtown with skyscrapers and just full of activity and life. For me, it is like a shot from a suburb that overlooks the downtown.
The only thing I am not keen about in this photo is the sky. Although the cloud dispersal is quite amazing, I feel it is more like it has been "Drawn" rather than captured. Indeed, this may add a nice mood but it also depends how the viewers perceives it.
One interesting subject in this photo is the tunnel/bridge right in the middle. I wish you showed a little bit more of it which could have added a nicer feel of what is next.
Also, the furthest horizon on the right shows the sea. Which could be 100's of meters away and hidden by all the city landscape, yet we can still feel and see it is there.
I think the composition and vision of this piece indeed deserves a 5/5. I just love all the elements.
The best part of your HDR, I feel, is the hill right in te middle. The most significant element would be the small verandas facing the skyscrapers.
What do you think?

This one really pops, lots of color mixed in with the hdr makes a good photo. I normally dislike how many hdr photos tend to look washed out. The clouds look really neat as well, almost look like 3d :P
