Now and then for the past four years I have been thinking of showing this photo, maybe entitled "For body and soul", but I never was totally enthusiastic about it. If someone had been browsing the books or someone had been buying an ice-cream it would have been another matter. But a street photo without people is just not to my liking. The strange background is just a decorated tarpaulin covering a building site.
I hope you won't be offended, but I've just done a very quick workshop for you in an effort to try to brighten this image a little. I used "Levels" and found that there was a lack of light pixels and too many dark ones so I used Levels and also the "Lighten Shadows/Darken Highlights" feature as well and finished with just a little sharpening.
