Shadows on the walls still not there

Look at the original conversion... there are distinct shadows on the walls where there stars are. They still don't appear in your edited jpeg....

The "washed out" green as well. Iron work a bit trickier but doesn't
seem too bad to me.

Point is that there is a point to shooting jpeg if one wants to.
