I know I could re-list this and put it in the critic gallery but I have already re-listed it to day as I brightened it up a little.
Anyway any advice on how I could improve this including the mono conversion would be great.
I have hit an editing block Smile with this and i cannot seem to improve it. I just think there Is something missing with it.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure if you can allow modifications after you have uploaded. May be something to remember for the next upload.

Downloaded the darker of the two and did a simple granient map of black to white and it really perks up the contrast, but of course that depends if that is the look that you want.

I like version two a little more than version one but in all honestly i'd be happy with either as it's a great shot and they both work.

In CS4...

+0.14 Exposure and 0.80 Gamma Correction makes an impressive difference on the darker version (for me Smile
