I stumbled upon a series of images by a photographer on Flickr and I'm curious as to how he's achieved the effect. They almost look CGI but they're not and I find myself slightly enthralled by them. Some of his other images are clearly HDR and perhaps these are too but with a different technique

Very Graphic.
I have seen similar w single image tone map software.
The actual settings and enhancements are his secret sauce but just adjustments.
Good Luck.

Looks like very nicely done HDR to me, followed by equally well done local contrast enhancement and sharpening. Nothing over the top.

The second image (Van Nelle), for example, was taken in harsh sunlight as shown by the tree shadows. Yet the face of the white building is kept at a middle gray while the shadow end of the building (with wording) is only a couple of stops lower. In one shot those two areas would have been 6 to 8 stops apart.

The couple that are overcast probably looked close to that to begin with. You can easily do that with a single file, you wouldn't even need to make a HDR.

The one with a blue sky was very likely polarized, it looks like it and you can see unevenness in the sky as well as very strong vignetting. Dragging the highlights slider down and pumping the shadows a bit will give you that look, and most of the image is underexposed.

It also looks like he added a bit of tonal contrast.

The Van Nelle image looks like an HDR and is the least appealing to me. It has harsh shadows, the clouds are blotchy, and the grass looks like a neon color.

I think it's careful use of a PS filter, or combination of filters, then painting out the filter on the sky, it's nice

I really like picture 1(Erasmus MC) and 5 (Tiny House), the other not so much. The people in the shots look like CGI, especially 4

Everything is in focus. If he hasn't used a mobile phone camera with a tiny sensor then he may have used focus stacking.
