There is an opportunity to try an HDR.

5 JPEG files are here: JPEGS

5 RAW files are here: RAWS

These were handheld, so depending on your software, don't forget to align the images if you go down the HDR route.

Enjoy :)

Entry #1. Cropped to get rid of the "FOO", various masks to bring down some distracting highlights and a preset to leave the shade in place. It looks like such a bright day that the shade would be dense and just lit from reflections off the building opposite. Cloned out the TV ariel and a border in PS.

Entry #1:

Import the five raw files in to Capture One Pro 23 and performed an HDR Merge with default settings. Then did a bit of keystone correction, before a bit of further HDR correction (shadow recovery, highlight recovery), slightly increased the contrast and then pushed up the saturation a bit.
