Duplicated RAW, Raised brightness of one of them, exported both to JPEG, selected wall area of brighter one, pasted onto darker one, performed level adjustments on each, merged layers, applied dodge to pot's light edges and blurred them (looked funny after merge), did levels again, rotated to level, applied USM (R1, A0.66, T0), blurred some harsh edges, resize for web. Whew!

it seems underexposed. too much detail is lost here.

I like the air of mystery of wondering what's the other side of the gate but I think it could do with a touch more exposure to reveal texture and detail particularly to the right

Interesting little place, looks like there could be some lovely reds and greens going on, would've loved to see this in full daylight.
