Jim, sorry for the delay in responding. I used Auto Contrast then Auto Level in PS CS2 to create the second image. The black on the front/rear of the DMU looks to have a grey tinge to me. When you use Auto Contrast in the Nikon Software the image is instantly brighter and more vibrant. How would I do that in PS CS2?

I will try the fade tool and see how it goes ...

Someone also noted on another board that it was difficult to get a sense of direction with this photo.
