I tried the same type of adjustments to this photo yesterday, but doesn't it seem to contrasty and noisy this way? Personally I think the photo was too under exposed to begin with.
I didn't expect terrific results working with such a small copy, but think the original copy would have much more detail (this was taken with a 5DIII). It was under exposed, but I still think it could make a nice image.
Since I had such a small image, I just did a quick edit and didn't try dealing with the noise.
Canon 7D, 5D, 35L, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.8, 135L, 200L, 10-22, 17-55, 70-300, 100-400L, 500D, 580EX(2).
Sigma 150 macro, 1.4X, 2X, Quantaray 2X, Kenko closeup tubes, Yongnuo YN685(3), Yongnuo YN-622C-TX. Lots of studio stuff.
** Image Editing OK **
