Unsharp Mask will increase contrast, but it works by exaggerating local differences. You probably do want to use Unsharp Mask in the processing of an image like this to increase the amount of contouring, but it's not the best way to go about fixing the major tonal issue. You can't really say that there isn't enough total contrast in the image, since you ...


Although I use Lightroom and Photoshop, I am sure that my preferred method of sharpening can be applied in GIMP The best way I have found to achieve that Sharp and Contrasty Black and White look is through an initial tonal adjustment and then a High Pass Filter.

I suggest you take a look at the "composing" sections here and there on different websites. What I can really recommend are 2 options: A program that lets you "cut" quite precisely your subjects ...


Just to see how well it would work, I had a go at removing the fence from your sample image. Don't get me wrong: prevention is way better than cure. I did this mainly for curiosity, and just in case you had an image that already had this issue and re-shooting was not a possibility. Before After Steps: I gave it an overall contrast boost.
