    Seriously - its hard to recover a JPG like this. You blow the highlights, and lose the contrast. The clouds are awesome however.

    I used a new adjustment layer to lighten the foreground then blended the two together. I also removed some of the distracting elements like the headlights in the distance, the buildings and the fence posts. I forgot to straighten the horizon.

    New and improved.

    mainly I made several quick copies of the image and blended on screen till I had teh ground where i wanted it. Then masked teh sky and brought that detail back and then did a lot of gaussian blur to make the transition smoother. Then I replaced teh really red tones of the dirt with somethign browner. yeah the sky could be cleaned adn teh halos between teh ground and sky but that would mean spending more than 30 seconds

    that's what happens when you underexpose a pic and try and fix it in post.
