Well the whole HDR section here on forums should then be deleted.
People just recognize the term "HDR" better than "Tone Mapping".

If picture is JPEG,TIFF it can't be HDR.
HDR files are named *.hdr and contain more bit depth than any modern monitor can show.

You REALLY need to read this:

yea, happens easily when surrounded by darker higher contrast elements like that part of the sky.

we will just use a loose definition of HDR here. it is assumed, and should be assumed, to be a place to discuss anything loosely related to tonemapped single images, or tone-mapped multi-image blends. so the general stuff you get out of the more popular programs.

^I like what you did.

I also tried to add some "POP" or more tonal contrast, but I always keep thinking that i'm going over the top and end up with more "conservative" result.

i have that trouble too when I do an HDR. i always think i am going over the top, but then when i share it, others don't feel that way at all.

i think it comes because as the photographer we know what the reality of the scene is, so we are making that comparison in our head, whereas the viewer has no reference and is just judging based on aesthetics.

Dustin, that's SO true! As I think you pointed out to me with the shot of the truck cab I posted.
