    Not bad, looks a little flat for an HDR though. You probably took this midday, yeah? I'd try it later in the afternoon or early morning. You'd get a much better effect.

    I don't see "HDR" so much as I see "Circular Polarizer" or "ND Filter" ... which may or may not be a bad thing, depending on the look you're going for.

    wasnt really going for a full out, heavy duty HDR effect...that section of road is actually pretty dark, and I was trying to get a photo that brought out all the details that would normally be hidden by shadow..

    Maybe upload the original midrange shot so people can compare. It will be more obvious then to see the change.

    But yours makes a change from the horribly over processed shots, yours is more natural looking :)

    It's not too bad for a first try, you definitely need to add some curves to some parts of the image.

    Other than doing some sharpening, and adjusting exposure, saturation..etc Im not too familiar with image processing...I know there is a curves function on PS and aperture, but Im not sure what it does or how to apply it..
