This one i felt had good potential but came out underexposed. V3 is the original and V1 and V2 are my meagre attempts at recovery feedback on how to recover this and anything i could have done different. Exif Data is below

High ISO speed noise reduction : Enable
Highlight tone priority : -

Shooting conditions were not ideal with the sky being overcast and low light, ISO could have been set to lower i guess than the current value of 400 there were distractions at the top edges of the shot which i have cloned / cropped out of the V1 and V2 variants, post processing has led to some flare in the water around the man

slightly dark, but well composed...have had a play around with a mod

ran it through noiseware, lifted light, saturated and re-sharpened

Nice shot. As you say, it has potential. Jeff's shown you how it's done, so I won't repeat the advice.

One thing I would say (and I'm as guilty of this as the next person), use the screen on the back of your camera to review your shots. You can reshoot if you know at the time that it's wrong, but can't always go back for a second go at a later date.

V1 is actually best. I would simply try the burning in tool on the figure at a high nmagnification, but all you need is to lighten him.

Otherwise, I look at the geese. They are the brightest highlights in the picture along with the disturbed water and I would get rid of them. The picture IS the man - then he needs to be walking into the frame rather than out of it.

Agree with the previous comment by focus_man ,where the subject is leaving rather than entering the picture, and also the main point of interest is the man walking out of the water and therefore less of the remaining scene seems to work better. Included a mod , flipped the man so he seems to walk into the scene, cropped and cloned out some distractions on the steps, also added some filters for a bit more punch. Hope this helps.

Sorry, in my earlier comment i meant the dodging tool - needs to be lighter, not darker.
