Boy, I must be missing something here.
You're on the wrong track. You can't fix the Leaf
image; it's already had its shadow tones compressed
Open the *Nikon* image. Go to Image->Adjust->Levels
and move the black slider up to about 10 or 12. Note
how the "haze" disappears. Move the slider to 15
and the image looks even better -- except for the
shadows, which disappear in blackness.

It's a bogus comparison. It proves nothing about
the relative merits of either scanner.
