A horse drawn carrige by the side of the road.

I used a Canon S5 IS.

It was shopped a bit for levels, curves, cropped, and probably saturated and dodged a bit to get more detail on the horses' faces.

When I view it now the horses' still seem a bit too dark.

Yes, but do so selectively - i.e. you don't want to change shadows for entire image. Since you have curves, you should have software with layers so I'd suggest correcting the horses in a layer and painting it in.

Here is what John suggested using layers "fill" and painted in lightness.

My attempt.

I have dodge the face of the horse quite a bit beforehand, and now with the exposure layer it was even more enhanced. How does it look? Too much?
