I don't think it only works on a bright day, but you'll have to have the shutter open for longer on a dull day and therefore you'll need to have your camera on a tripod or supported with a beanbag, also there won't necessarily be a lot of cloud interest in the sky.
I went out today, it was overcast and the drizzle had only just stopped. So I thought I'd try to take one without any sky, I came back with this:
My battery ran out as I didn't check it before I went out and I had forgotten to take my spare, so again wasn't able to spend as long doing this as I had wanted. One of these days I might get everything to come together
Oh and BTW there is a HDR tutorial on this site
