Honda Goldwing HDR from West Virgina

This was a single exposure HDR tone mapped from a single RAW file. Post processing was done using Photoshop. I applied a gradient map and the Orton Effect to this photo, and also blended some of the original image back in. I thought this was going to be a quick process, but it ended up taking way longer than it should have. The downfall of being a perfectionist ;-)
