Thumbs down HDR fix: Lucis Art+Shadow/Highlight

I've got a nasty example of an extreme lighting situation: Lunchtime at the famous Farmer's Market in LA (where James Dean ate his last breakfast...). Shot with no fill flash on auto-exposure, the original (top) is either too dark or too light with little middle ground.

I knew Lucis Art could pop open the shadows (second image), which it did to a great degree.

Photoshop's native Shadow/Highlight did a decent job, but with less contrast/color and detail.

So! I applied Shadow/Highlight to the Lucis Art version, and got an excellent result.

See a larger version of these examples here.

Thank yew... Thank yew very much! Glad I made your day.

The fun begins when you combine multiple Lucis Art effects with each other or, as in this case, with a native PS function. In my ezines I have tutorials showing this type of approach with multiple plug-ins being applied to a single image. Why not?
