Hi, Kathleen. I can see you have had a go at editing this one, and can fully understand why you were reluctant to go too far. With the simple adjustment of light and contrast, you could easily lose the misty mountains background whilst attempting to enhance the rest. Some people will use layers for this type of adjustment. What it really needs is for certain areas to be individually selected and worked on. I wouldn't expect you to have got to that stage in your editing yet, and feel this one is a bit of a challenge for you. However, you will get there one day, I have no doubt. I have uploaded a modification for this under your "Fun in the Park" and hope that's ok. I found that working with only 600 pixels was difficult when getting definition, but it gives you an idea of what can be achieved, so put this one aside and come back to it at a later date, and work on the original.
I selected 3 areas individually. Foreground grass and rocks, lower part of the hill, and upper part of the hill. Each area was lightened, saturated and given contrast at different levels, according to the light and colour required in each. The only area I sharpened was the foreground. I used the Dodge Tool on a few areas where the golden sunlight hit the ground, and also all along the rocks and stream, this lightened and highlighted those areas further. I left the misty background exactly the same.
