    Adjusted the color balance. Not perfect, but better. A sepia conversion is plan b.

    I have tried to bring out the ring around the sun by increasing the contrast throughout the image.

    With all respect to Muhammed and his original HDR shot!

    I began in GIMP to dodge the upper right to find more detail in the woodwork. I have also applied some sharpening (probably too much!), and I have brought up the reds.

    With all respect to Sasha, this foto, and this scene!

    With all respect to the original shot and your fine eye, Brenda, I thought the Angel deserved to stand out a bit more. I dodged the trees, then changed the gamma (wish I could explain that beyond "adjusting the mid-point"), and cropped slightly to eliminate the shadows from the foreground.

    With all respect to the original image, the colors appeared flat to me. In GIMP (a free post-processing software), I...

    -- cropped slightly;
    -- dialed up saturation a small bit;
    -- adjusted color balance:
    more yellow in highlights;
    more red in midtones;
    more green in shadows;
    -- added some brightness and some contrast
    -- highlighted the bridge in background;
    -- lightly dodged the highlights in the trees that were showing fall colors; and
    -- slightly burned-in the shadows in the green trees and mountainous horizon.

    Best regards,

    Here is the original frame with minimal post-processing, compressed for TrekEarth, but intended to show the cropping decisions I made -- and for which you all have been so kind as to share your opinions!
