    Question Assistance with Exposure Levels

    Goodmorning,

    I have had the following night shot rejected for it being underexposed: https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6557995 .
    From my perspective and my previous experience editing night shots, I feel like this has the right amount of light on it. It could also be that the colours on my computer screen are not set as they should be. Any tips on how to improve this photo?

    Regards,

    See the histogram, it appears unbalanced (right side). I did a quick edit here and got this result (moving the right side to 213).

    See if looks better to you also. Betters wait comments from the screeners.

    Cheers,

    Adjust the right side of the luminosity histogram to fix the underexposure.
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    Thank you both for your assistance. Will do some research on how to understand histograms to avoid this happening again in the future.
