    I've just recently stepped up from a point-and-shoot [to a Canon 7D], just began to mess with processing software, and basically just started to get serious about photography in an amateur way, but I like the composition.

    Now I'll be spending the summer taking some courses and trying to gain some knowledge of this.

    I would clone out the vehicles in the background at a minimum.

    I was questioning that as well the photo does look processed pretty heavily in spots (on my laptop it appears to be) I was assuming tonemapped single image.

    Yes, it's just tonemapped. Using Hydra, I figured this would be the best home for it.

    If you just tone map the image then state so when you post. It saves a lot of confusion.
