By looking at the before and after you may be saying to yourself, "But I could make the shadows even more bright . . ."
Yes that's true, but as I have been watching and participating in photography trends and styles for the past two decades, I can safely say that the overly-processed look of HDR's 'ultra perfect exposure' has now run its course.
Everyone is free to edit their photos any way that they please, however if you want to give your photos a longer shelf-life, I would advise retaining a moderate amount of shadow. Essentially what you want to do is adjust your photo's shadow area to the point where it looks unrealistic, and then back off a bit.
The increased Shadows and decreased Blacks trick should keep your photo within good looking
bounds, if that is what you are aiming for.
As always, happy photographing!
