This time you could not accuse me of being too cold?More the opposite? What did I miss?
Nice picture and moody.

It looks like you missed the linked neutral part

Shadow and Highlight the image....then Set a neutral on the roof tiles near the center and set another neutral on the shadow in front of the statues. 

Then carefully select one of the neutral points on the curve not in the image and move it vertically.  (notice the red dashed lines showing the linkage) All three curves R, G, B will move together to keep the selected curve point neutral.  you can then play around with contrast in this image without adding a hideous color cast...

Did I really just call your image hideous??  No but you get the point....

Thanks for all the help on this picture. Here is my next try. Think it is better. Nice feature:)

PS Did you check last fruit picture? Had some fight. Seems as soon as I saturate fruit colurs and try to get them right greys get a cast. Would like a comment on last try. DS

Much better on this one....
As you can see you can play with the neutral like an "L" channel well almost....It is a handy tool to keep in the tool box...

I did look at your fruit stand picture and I am trying to figure out a way to take it forward...
I'll post to that thread so as to not confuse....
