What do you think of these images? Is it still too dark? I tried to add some effects to make it look interesting.

Your choise of something like HDR seems to be right, but are you really sure that a more glossy or contrasty picture isn't better?

thanks. What you suggest to improve the contrast. I'm using Photoshop.

I agree, more contrast could punch it up nicely. In photoshop, there are several ways of increasing the contrast -- contrast adjustment, levels, and curves.

These days, I usually use curves, but that took me a while to get the hang of. I would suggest the Levels adjustment -- it gives you more control than just the contrast adjustment, but is more intuitive than curves. I often start with Auto Levels just to get a rough idea. Basically, what you need to do to increase contrast is stretch out the histogram so it uses the full dynamic range.

If you need more details, PM me and I will be happy to help. Good luck, and let us know how you make out.
