    Not bad. Personally I think the first one just needs to be brightened and saturated. :)

    How do you brighten a photo? I saw a VT where they used 3 layers of the same image to create the HDR effect. Is that the only way or is there any other way?

    You can brighten images using curves, levels, brightness and contrast, and several layers with different blending mode. To get a fake HDR effect you need to use the several layers plus other steps. :)
