    The Levels histogram proved that the highlights and shadows were 255 and 0 respectively (i.e. there were no details in areas that were pure white or black). I used the white- and black-point eyedroppers set to 96% white and 4% black respectively to slightly reduce the contrast, and now I think it's possible to see a little more detail in the foreground dark areas. I then selected the middle area (mountains) and increased the contrast there using Brightness/Contast dialogue box. Finally I tried to reduce the noise (particularly the colour noise) using Noise Reduction and Despeckle. Changes are only subtle, so I hope you won't object or feel that I've interfered too much.

    Hello Ihsan,

    Using PSE10, I simply removed the colour cast.
    I hope you like the result.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    I haven't touched the saturation at all (those who know me won't be surprised!) Instead I've increased contrast using Levels (the levels histogram confirmed my suspicions about the lack of highlights), and also warmed the tones up a tad using a bit of red filtration. Hope you don't mind, Jean!

    This is a more in depth view of Abbotsford Hall, from the rear. It gives an idea of its size and design.

    Although I like the density of this low-key image, I thought there might be some extra detail to be extracted from the shadows. I used Image>Adjustments>Shadows/Highlights just on the shadow elements: Amount 35%; Tonal Width 50%; Radius 30px.

    What do you think?
