First, nice image.

I think you got the pre and post reversed; certainly you couldn't have gotten back those clipped highlights.

Certainly the image is underexposed. You were right to lighten it, but I think you went just a bit too far. I played with it the curves a bit, and I came up with this.

Hello David

Thanks for the response. First the lighter image is the one directly from the camera except conversion to jpg. shot as raw. My initial reason to send it non processed was too judge if focus soft or not. What is your opinion on focus. Also I might have been over aggressive on processing first photo. Thanks for the comments and I did like your processing of the photo.

Ah, so that's how you got those highlights back.

I can't tell without the full res image, but the focus in the small JPEG looks fine to me.

Thanks david for the response. Non processed image is 50% of original size and with jpg compression only. Again thanks for the comments
