I'm new to using my converted Coolpix 990 camera. I took this shot today and I know it can be salvaged.
Anyone care to tackle this shot with their digital darkroom talents?

The original untouched shot is on my pBase account.
Here's a large size:

Well here is my take on an improvement for your image. Basically I moved both sliders in levels until it came into contact with your histogram data. I then went to Contrast/Brightness and increased the contrast quite a bit and then cut down on the brightness. Next I went to Shadow/Highlight and let it do it's thing.

It is a lovely image with soft lacy leaves on the trees. Just needed a little TLC in post processing.
