(new toning methods)
Now that I can see clearly now...
The tones and contrast look great to me. A few things do bug me though...the ground doesn't really look wet, but you've got water drops on the hood of the car. I'd fix going one way or the other just for consistency's sake. I also think there's a tiny bit too much space on the left side of the frame, and there's a weird highlight in front of the rear driver's side car that isn't consistent with the shadow. The focus point also seems to be off a tiny bit, since the driver's side front look a bit sharper than the passenger side. Finally, the windshield is almost a little too dark, since it looks darker than the bottom air dam area of the front bumper (where a FMIC would be).
