Default HDR @ the Cemetery

I took this photo while visiting my grandfather at the cemetery. This was an HDR developed from a single jpeg. I have also attached the original photo this time. Let me know what you think!

HDR really helped on this shot. Bring out allot of detail that was hidden in the shadows. And it adds allot more vividness to the color that was kind flat in the original.

I used Photomatix Pro and went with the tone mapping.

I think a little over-saturated but it's a perfect subject for a single-shot pseudo HDR. It would also be easy to use the layer approach on this as the histograms for the sky and foreground are completely separate. I'd crop a bit off the each side to get rid of those warehouses on the left and bring the tree into the centre.

I cropped it to 16:9 while getting rid of the warehouse on the left. I think it looks better now =)

So far I think Simon's version is ahead by a length and a half coming up to the wire.
