That's good thinking as long as tourists
don't get the idea of levitating! ;)

It is clear to see that your take has a lot
of mid-tones but not blacks nor whites…
I took your take to my converter to confirm
and I can recognize that the DRL was not
set as it reads 11/239!

Nice one, KQC.
Have a wee go at an edit; what would be the best thing to do? Was a very grey building on a grey day.

Also, can I get a copy of your converter machine thingy...and instructions on how to use :)

I recommend to always start with pulling out the best of the recorded
data in the RAW file: DRL and WB.

Was a very grey building on a grey day.
I understand that but the tones are the tones and the Sun will only
extend the DR and not create it (unless the scene was in total darkness :ROFLMAO:).
can I get a copy of your converter machine thingy
… included!
instructions on how to use
DRL = Dynamic Range Levels = black and white points setting. The histogram
will show you the spread of the recorded dynamic range in the 0/255 to 255/255
scale. As I said, the shot read 011/255 to 239/255. So, the empty space at the top
and bottom translate to a "no data" grey cast over the picture. Set the DRL left tail
at 011/255 and the head at 239/255 and observe the changes. The following image
reflects just that. It is still a grey building on a grey day but…
