    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.

    Using the histogram information, I set B&W control points which adds a little contrast to the scene

    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!

    I've been having problems with uploading to TE. The site seems to change the colour and quality of this shot. I hope that this one looks better!

    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?
