I like this picture. Granted, it's not a pretty scene but the amount of detail is very cool and the sky adds an appropriate atmosphere to it. Have you tried the CS5 HDR feature? I've heard it's light-years ahead of the previous one.

There are definately more knobs to turn, but just haven't played with it much.
I think it's better for making more natural looking HDR's but you can get freaky with it too. There's also few presets to play with.

I think the content-aware fill and the new lens correction tool are the best updates.

For me HDR is supposed to increase the viewability of a picture. Details in both the highlights and shadows. In the photo here we have too many really dark shadow areas with little if any details in them. I personally dont agree with the processing done to it.

That simply isn't possible with todays monitors.
You can make your photo look washed out and have all shadows open and plenty of detail (Photoshops HDR).

Besides, i'm not looking for more dynamic range, I just like tone mapping, this doesn't have anything to do with HDR.

i like the mood and textures in this shot. the tonemapping fits the subject matter well.

i would just darken the white patch of sky behind the cab to match the rest of the sky.

Oh, now I understand. This has nothing to do with HDR. So you have just uploaded it to the wrong thread.

Yeah, that tends to happen sometimes with tone mapping, gotta pay attention next time.
