I'm not familiar with the acronyms OOC and ACR.

OOC --> Out Of Camera --> The file as it exists on your memory card. Sometimes used as SOOC --> Straight Out Of Camera.
ACR --> Adobe Camera Raw --> A utility that converts your Raw (.cr2) file. Mostly used when importing raw files in Photoshop.

...The only thing that seems to work is monochrome but it's still not quiet right and I like the colored version better. I would really really appreciate a point in the right direction.

Actually, that first high contrast shot might make an interesting print on a brushed finish bare metal panel. 8-)

The mistake I made was to leave the flash on which locked the shutter speed at 1/250. I couldn't go higher and I was trying to capture a quick image and realized my mistake too late. All of you are right.

It's not just the flash, but because the flash was on, I couldn't raise the shutter speed to properly meter the shot for f2.8

You had the right idea using flash to tame the shadows some. Here's a tip from what I do, go into the flash menu and select 'high speed flash' - it's like a double arrow facing downwards and this mistake will be a problem of the past. You'll have to set it each time you change batteries tho.

Here's a couple places to check out, though I don't have any personal experience with the first two.

I've bought a couple metal prints from Aspen Creek Photo that I've been pleased with. But they were printed on a white coated metal panel. For your picture I was thinking of the prints made on a brushed aluminum panel. Anything that's white in your picture will show as the brushed aluminum finish of the panel. Changes in lighting will change the look of the print, but it's hard to see the true effect looking at samples online.

I've used Bay Photo in the past. They do good work but they are extremely expensive.

Yeah... The prints on metal panels can get spendy, especially on the larger sizes. I wonder how it might look printed on one of the metallic finish photo papers?

3 minutes in LR and PS

there is a lot there to work with if you go slowly in PS if you really need to have this picture - cloning, colours, etc

- remove the head in foreground
- fix the colors on the wood ladders with cloning
- shirt and skin colours are there for painting etc as is steering wheel
- very slight crop
- if I spent 1hr I could do a lot - just rebuild it slowly with what you have
- set black point, reduce green luminance, exposure down 3.5 stops, increase blue hew slightly, some radial masks to slightly reduce exposure where desired and increase on some parts of face etc

Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

anytime

macgyver was one of my favorite shows as kid and looking at LR/PS and photo reconstruction as a challenge is a good frame of mind to take when you are starting

start with what you have and then just build it out

you may see all the little things that aren't perfect but it doesn't matter - put it in a frame or tape a 4x6 to the fridge - all that matters is that there is a young boy having a great time driving a broken old machine - all the other stuff just adds character

download it off the flikr link if you like it

or better yet, do that and then use LR and PS and do it better - clone stamp, paint brush and a little base adjustments in LR to give you the starting point

I really admire those who go the extra mile. It's great to see an image reconsructed from nearly nothing, especially when it means so much to the poster.

Those of us (me in particular) who say 'get it right in camera' might seem a bit too 'up themselves' sometimes, yes we do come across a bit inflated and I apologise for this.
