This is a shot of one of the many street performers in Las Ramblas, Barcelona, and I initially thought that the shots I'd taken of this woman probably wouldn't work out. If you take a look at the straight shot you'll see why (processed with the default settings in ACR):

So, given that the straight shot wasn't up to much, I decided to try a pseudo-HDR version (tone mapping a single RAW file using Photomatix Pro). As I hope you'll agree, this version is a big improvement.
