I think this could be a bit punchier so I had a go at a mod. The obvious try would be black and white but I figure you'd have done that yourself if that's what you wanted. I did desaturate it by about a third, though, and burned things in quite a bit to darken them, before dodging out a few spots of light. And I vignetted it a bit to push the eye away from the corners.

Thought I would have a go at making this a darker image. Basically, bit a burning and changing the colours. Suppose I could have done a bit of texturing as well. I think this photo is crying for this effect.

terrific location and image, also gone for a darker mod, but different, and it's my 400th mod Smile

Okay, so if no-one else wants to do the obvious, I will. B&W works great on this shot, IMHO.

I did 2. A straight conversion, which I think works best, & a 2nd which I darkened & played with the contrast on...parhaps a little much.

That's not to say it doesn't work in colour.

While I do like the darker versions, somehow I just prefer your as-shot version.
