I made the tracks in the foreground darker and darkened the mountain on the right...just to give some variation of tones.

Using the Adjustment Brush in CS6 I changed the light to give more emphasis on the pedals in the foreground.

I darkened the photo then used the Adjustment Brush to paint in some highlights so that the shot had more interesting tones.

The camera can't see pure white or black and transforms each into 18% grey. In order to get the proper tones in this situation you have to open up the Aperture between 1 1/2 and 2 stops.

I straightened out the vertical and horizontal lines to show the difference. We get used to divergence and convergence with normal digital photography and forget that in the old days with moveable lenses the lines were straight. To correct the normal perspective problems you can use Photoshop or in this case Capture One to change the angles. This can also be accomplished even better using a tilt shift lens.
