    Some members on another forum suggested that. This has about a half EV boost. The thing is, now highlights are starting to clip. This is the reason I didn't choose more exposure to begin with. I suppose a 3 bracket blended exposure might have worked better.

    I like this second version. Did you simply dial +.5EV in exposure or did you use specific sliders like Shadows, and the Tone Curve? (if using LR4)

    It is a bit dark, what settings did you use? I try to keep ISO as low as possible, and aperture out of the low range (I'll usually choose 18-22), and let the rest take care of itself (aperture choice for me is to get sharp lights, usually with starbursts... I prefer that to fuzzy light)

    Using gimp i used curves to shift the exposure but i also wanted to maintain black levels.
