Bit ott in the new found cartoon world of HDR/tone mapping, but I think it works in this example.

Congrats on the HC Dave, and I see you've invested in the Photoshop "People and Cars" plugin. Personally I think the sky lets this one down a little. It's a bit flat and does'nt have the drama of the rest of the shot.

Hell's Teeth, Dave, that is about the best HDR image I've seen. Excellent atmosphere to it too.
Well-deserved HC and RC.

There's so much to like about this - textures and tones of the cobbled street, the reflections in the glass,the perspective, wonderful light and shadows and a great sky. You really deserve the HC Dave - I love it!

A big thank you to everyone who has very kindly left a comment on this piece, and a particular thank you to Pete for the HC, I'm most grateful. One or two people have mentioned HDR in their comments, but it's important to stress that the process I have used is NOT HDR, but a single RAW file, split into two versions and processed through Photomatix Pro and then processed a second time using adjustment layers in Photoshop. Either way I'm chuffed that so many people approve of the result. Many thanks again everyone...

It may not be HDR but this effect can be quite useful, and you did a good job on it.
