    Ciao caro Silvio,

    I hope that you don't mind my "playing" with your photograph!

    Using Photoshop Elements, I opened the image in RAW, reduced the noise a little and slightly increased contrast and saturation before opening it and giving it just a little touch of sharpening. Perhaps the saturation is a little strong, but see what you think!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    The Levels histogram suggested that, although there was some white pixels (in the sky at the top), the majority of the image was dark and with low contrast. I used Levels and Brightness/Contrast to raise the overall midtones and increase the contrast.

    Hope you don't mind!

    Just a bit of copy/pasting, cloning and resizing fun! Hope you don't mind: it keeps me off the streets.

    It took only a few seconds to check the Levels histogram and to see that there were no highlights at all. Pulling the highlight slider to the left to where the histogram began forced the lightest pixels up towards white (255 on the Richter!), and a compensating rightwards nudge on the Gamma (midtone) slider ensured that the foreground was nice and dark. A lot quicker to do than to explain!

    What do you think?

    I used a combination of the Shadows/Highlights and Levels commands to lighten the darkest areas (subtlely I hope!). I also warmed up the tones of the sunset, using Selective Colour.

    What do you think?
