Default Can I make this shot RP worthy?

I've futzing with this shot-the tank car is in the shadow. any tips, suggestions? I'm mostly using the RAW conversion software from Canon

In this second shot, I forget to level, but m I getting closer to a final product?

The first version looks much, much better. The second one is way too blown out. Looks like you went crazy with Shadows/Highlights. I'm not sure the first would makeit onto RP, but as a photorgaph, it's entirely more pleasing to the eye.

thanks-not sure if even I can get the color of the trees better that I'd pass because of the lack of detail on the tank car, corrrect?

Poor lighting will kick this off of RP, but it's still not a bad shot. I wouldn't worry too much about the detail of the tank car. With the lighting as it is, we shouldn't expect that much detail of the tank car. Process the entire scene with the engine in mind.
