    Could you post the the properly exposed original (non HDR) image as well?

    This really didn't need HDR processing. Curves and saturation, would have yielded similar results.

    Also, I think a shallower DOF would have made it a bit more interesting. Exif shows F10. I would have shot at like f4 or 3.5

    Still, the image does nothing for me, composition-ally.

    Your HDR gave it a more rusty look.

    The HDR version is far better than the flat looking original in my opinion. Much more punch and color. As for a shallower DOF, -- WHAT!!! There are out of focus areas as is. If anything, the f10 should have been f21.
    Im beginning to think the HDR forum should be split in two. One for those who dont like HDR, dont use HDR and never will use HDR. The other will be for people who like it and use it.

    Entity, how was HDR not used correctly there?

    Next time do not tell them you did HDR, and they will not know. It will elminate the HDR complaints. ;)

    The only issue I have is the scrap wire and other construction debris, it is a little distracting.
