A Rude Awakening

Something happened, Detective Ken wakes up in a Desert. I'm a bit stuck on whether the HDR Toning works or not, or whether to keep both, treating them like different times of the day. Feel free to leave an opinion on that. Normally I like to use different softwares for 1 piece, but this time I chose to do it with nothing but photoshop.
