Regardless of HDR "pollution" treatment it is a smashing piccy.

Ah, I was wondering what HDR had to do with a reservoir when I thought it was to do with cancer treatment - or maybe I could be wrong with that thought too. Guess its to do with cameras as well!

Not quite right Garry, it could have been taken in camera with HDR facility or any ordinary camera and then developed in HDR software. It stands for High Dynamic Range It is actually a method of taking advantage of the available light to maximize the detail in the resulting image. It has always been around and was used in the darkroom when developing using chemicals. Nowadays it can be done in camera/with software.
