I reduced the noise with Neat Image, using the Autoprofile set-up, did sme modest sharpening in Photoshop and altered the color balance towards red a tiny bit.

I added some contrast to the picture, and experimented with a somewhat more "dramatic" crop.
Of course the part about the gate in the story is gone, but I hope the thrill about this face-to-face is perhaps increased with this slightly different emphasis...

Auto color correction in Photoshop improves the bluish cast quite a bit.

In "Shadows/highlights", I increased shadows luminosity amount to 50 % and Highlight to 20 % in order to compress the luminosity range, making the image less hardly contrasted...

I made this WS before I saw Laurent had made one : interestingly we got very similar ideas, so I decided to post it anyway...
Cropped closer for impact, ran neatimage to clear some noise, then used the dodge tool in PS to lighten a little the female in the forefront.

Using photoshop, I added some brightness (tweaking the curves utill it felts right), ran some sharpening (unsharp mask) and cropped a little to avoid having the ant right in the middle.

I rotated the image CCW by 4 degrees, cropped it to remove uninteresting areas, added some contrast and ran unsharp mask in Photoshop.

180 degrees rotate(upside down) didn't work because of the shadows and perspective, but I feel this 90 degrees angle is more pleasing.

I cropped the image for more presence of the bug, and applied some automatic sharpening in photoshop.
