Here’s another of my Paris images. I had to drag color out of this image, kicking and screaming using the Curves feature. Problem was, all the Curves and levels caused grief with the light in the bottom right. I loved this light and it has a wonderful shape so I was bummed to see it as a big black blob.

So, back to the image, I corrected it separately for the light and then masked various portions of it until I had the best of both worlds – the light and the rest, sort of like having your cake and eating it too… kinda brings poor ol’ Marie Antoinette to mind doesn’t it? You know.. Paris, the revolution..
