    I don't get it?
    I think all your photographs looked better before you mucked with them - especially the first one, and I'm willing to be that they all print far to dark, especially if put through a CMYK process..
    Are you sure this is a good idea?
    You are normally far better pushing the middle of the curve towards the top left to lighten the image. I suspect all you are really doing is increasing the contrast.
    To get a vibrant print that looks like what you see onscreen on the printed page you need to remove some black to compensate for the lack of backlight.
    This may, of course, be an opinion rather than fact. Try it for yourself.

      Not so amazing, you lose far too much detail. The after shots appear over saturated.
