I think you did too much with the adjustment brush. It looks sloppy imo. Also cutting the car off sort of kills the shot T_T
If you upped the exposure a bit more, and cleaned it up with the brush, it might help
Nothing was done with an adjustment brush. What I did was pull back some of the colors too much and possibly pulled back saturation too much...

I eould have placed your lady and the m3 more on the left under the tree, it would be perfect than
I know. That's exactly what I wanted to do.....but with the limited time I had it was literally pop out of the car, throw everything up, shot about 15-20 frames, and rolled out. I might need to revisit

Sorry mate, but the halos absolutely destroy the shot for me. As does the overly bright light on the ground, uneven lighting on the girl and the fact that the M3 is cut off.
Maybe think about giving it a re-edit, using dodge/burning to neutralise the lighting on the girlie a bit, dull down the ground and kill off those halos. It may take longer to do it by hand than to do it via a program, but trust me, the end result of manual exposure blending is far
more gratifying than the OTT HDR look.
Good idea. I'm not good with dodging and burning, so I'm still learning. I'll definitely give that a try. Thanks!
I have another shot without the girl but with the whole car. I've yet to edit yet. So I'll be throwing that up soon.
