I saw this while exploring downtown Durham a few weeks ago.

 The wall reads:  

"True community is based upon equality, mutuality, and reciprocity.  It affirms the richness of individual diversity as well as the common humanities that bind us together"- Paul Murray


Here is the Edit Me Challenge photo for this week: 

The photo was provided by this week's judge Pam from Kassie's Beach.

Here's my Edit: 
Here's what I did:  I cropped it in a bit on both sides to center them a bit more.  I reduced the exposure some but I increased the fill light.  As I increased the fill light, I slightly increased the blacks.  I upped the brightness and contrast so you could see more detail in the photo.  I increased the lights a bit and the highlights only slightly.  I increased the darks but decreased the shadows quite a bit. 

What do you think?  What would you have done differently or kept the same?
