I did not mean to imply that all images must have a full range
of tones. However, in this image the men appear to be wearing white shirts and
their collars are in full sunlight. When I use a 3x3 sample with the eye dropper
I get an average of 230, 230, 230 which seems a bit dark to me for a white
object in direct sunlight. I don't like blown-out highlights but for a shot like
this I would expect them.
I wanted to make sure it was not just viewing the image in my
web browser that made it look flat to me so I opened the image in PS and
created a curves layer then put a point midpoint on the curve and moved it
sideways, the midtones of the image began to open up and in my opinion, the
image began to come to life.
