Yes, HDR is a wonderful tool but just like with anything else in life, too much is not good. If there is light, there's shadow. Eliminating a lot of it to bring out objects that are in the shadow will cause the "flat" effect and make the image unrealistic. I'm sure the car appeared very dark in the original picture under the heavy shade from the trees. So, HDR can certainly help bring the details from the shadows. However, the very light shadows on the street and buildings behind the vehicle are unrealistic (to my eyes) because they are way too light. I think you could lose so detail on the car by reducing the HDR effect and consequently increase the darkness of the shadows to make the image more realistic. That's my opinion, of course. As long as you are happy with your results, that's all that counts.

BTW, I do like the first three shots a lot!
