    Love it!! I love more intense HDRs like this, rather than the soft one which you can barley notice a difference, Good work! :thumbup:

    You still lost some details in the shadows particularly the wheel and wheel well.

    To make it look the way it does. I know that the "intended" use of HDR is to bring out shadows and pull down highlights to get a scene looking "the way the eye sees it", but photography is art. I'm sick of hearing people saying that "you didn't need to HDR this shot" and whatnot. If the photographer did it and is happy with the result, it was the right time to use it.

    Yes, lots of the time HDR's look overdone and cheesy, but it's all personal preference. I almost always hate the harry potter look that comes with overdone ones, but in this case, I think it looks awesome. Don't worry about the lost detail on the wheels and in the cab; if you brought that out, it would probably detract from the overall look and just be more distracting.

    Sure, that's not how it looked when you were there, but who cares.

    thanks mdtusz, yeah the original did not look right, and I agree sometimes HDR is just used as a personal preference I like both the overdone HDR if its done right and also the HDR's that are done to a more subtle look as to catch the intended look of the scene
