You think so? I actually thought the opposite. Lightening the foreground would make it compete with the eye catching lighthouse and drastic sunset glow. Ideally, I wouldn't want the people on the promenade island (or the whole promenade) but I don't have a choice about that. So I considered darkening them to a silhouette, but just didn't want to spend the time masking (this is not the kind of image where you can just play with gamma or histogram and just make things appear/disappear).

What do you think about that?

Here's there same image with the people cropped out - but the compromise is getting rid of the best parts of the sunset glow.

So should the foreground be darkened or lightened here?
