I disagree. It looks completely un-natural. The driver is in the shade from being inside the car. The second shot looks like now he's got a spot or fill light on him. It sticks out like a sore thumb. I would say a point in between the first shot and the second would be best and look more natural.

If you look at the OP photo samples there is no argument that the second image is much better with the driver pulled out of the shadows. However, I do not like what that same action did to the tire wall in the background. If I had a camera that produced #2 out of the box I would have needed to manipulate the background.

The OP should have selected the regions to pull out of shadows that make the image work and left the others alone.

Photography, like many other hobbies, persuits and art forms, is first and foremost about having fun and exploring.
