    cool shot Jon, great composition, and timing.. do you adjust your monitor with the Adobe Gamma.. it's in your control panel.. this really made a big difference with my set up here.

    open your control panel, click on adobe gamma, and follow the path.. took me a while to figure it out, but it worked..

    I was going nuts, and the 4 different photo softwares I was using would all show something different.. but tuning in the gamma did help a ton.

    I could be mistaken, but I think the problem isn't lightening so much as contrast? And maybe a little too strong on the sharpening? I think I may see halos around the subject. I'm -assuming- you did an unsharp mask? Maybe turn the radius down a bit and go a bit easier on the contrast tweak. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to see and play with the source image (resized of course, just not touched up)

    Let me know if I'm totally off base. It helps me own abilities to understand if I'm whacked. :lol:

    The second one is much better, Imo the halos are on the heavy side, but are OK because of the subjec[font=&quot]t [/font]
