I've probably made a mess of it, but I have a rendition if you'd like to see it. I'm happy to post it or send it in a PM. Either way, S-

Steve, I don't think you did such a bad job at all. This was a difficult one for me to get anywhere close to where I would like. Which was my reasoning for my second approach to this one. Harsh lighting, to me, is hard to gain control in post processing. Considering what you had to begin with, I think you did quite well. Oh, I'm sure I could pick things here and there, but at this stage I don't see the point. Thank you for showing your version. Its much appreciate.

I appreciate your compliment and really appreciate you letting me play with this. I try when it comes to post-processing and these practice sessions really help! S-

I think it's fun letting other people work on your images so you can see what they would come up with.

If you want to give it a try there's Edit My Shot or you can do it in your posts. It's always a joy! S-
