Nice & Interesting picture. I save the pic on my computer and adjusted the gamma settings to brighten the picture. A lots of the details are missing here.
Especially, the porcelin ware at the top rack.
If there is more light, this will be a v nice picture indeed.
Good effort :thumbsup:
OK so the main feeling here is that it neds to be lightened .
i personnally think that ruins the ambiance of the shot and the magazine editor was more than happy to hand over the cheque . :bsmilie:
but as i've kept the RAW image i've played around a bit , trouble with lightning it is that it increases the noise in the shadow area , could convert to mono and give it some noise to perhaps make it look like old 800asa slide film .
But i decided just to lighten it , up the contrast and do a touch of dodging and burning on the shadows/highlights of the image .
