    First off, Frank ... gotta watch your WB setting (when you go outside -> 5600K to 6600K or even "flash"!) ... that's where all that blue came from.

    Frank ... I noticed that this original is not really the original. What gives?

    Anyway ... here was my shot at it ... with a totally blown out backdrop:

    Note the enchanced details of the wheel rims and such ... impossible to detect in the upper image.

    Just shows to go ya, that you can get a heck of a lot out of one exposure! My apologies to 'TenD' for not getting the clouds correctly.

    Advice on future shots of this kind, Frank, use fill flash to assist in reducing the impact of the background and aloow for a more even exposire. I had the same kind of problem with the "Woodnymph" at the Ren Faire ... she looked like a living HDR all by her lonesome.

    I kind of reversed rule of thumb, where it states that "the brightest object in the image is usually the subject."
    Here, the MOST saturated object became the subject. Photographic terrorism, huh?

    Don I took several shots. The image I Butchered was the image that I took to try to make the HDR of. The other image was the jpeg of the RAW file. I couldn't figure out how to post a RAW file.

    Well, that's best I could get out of it. So ... you know ... back to re-snap, eh? Use a tripod and fill flash ... please on just one exposure.

    OK I have to admit that this one is probably beyond help. I gave it a shot though. The W/B being off, the blown out background, made this difficult. I like your B&W version of it before noise best.

    Not bad TenD . I am going to shoot it again. It might rain the next few days. Maybe Saturday.
    Thanks for giving it a try
