Bright day, ramp access , side on shot of an aircraft which is mainly white but with a dark, wide cheatline - sun is from the left and shining on top of fuselage which causes shadow of aircraft on ramp.
Picture is scanned and manipulated to get what i consider the best result and submitted.

but with warning
a) picture dark in tone etc.... and
b) scanned with too high contrast.
My question is - (i use photoshop btw) if i try to alter the contrast ie reduce it - it also affects the brightness and vice versa (catch 22) . The white fuselage especially in sunlight gives a slightly false impression of high contrast but equally creates a dark shadow.
Any suggestions ? or is it a case of just playing with settings
