I started with the RAW file from my Fuji XT-2 in Lightroom to adjust exposure. Then I applied the NIK collection Dfine 2 filter to reduce noise. This was followed by the NIK Silver fx 2 where I added vignetting, adjusted brightness, contrast, amplify blacks, then I added grain (with grain per pixel set at 90 for large grain) and burnt in edges to taste.
The photo now gives a better feeling of what the skulls actually looked like in the darkened room.
