To change the light and contrast of the image, make a new layer on the top. Active the Gradient Tool (G) and choose Radial Gradient with default colors (black and white). Drag a line from the top left to the bottom right of the canvas and change this layer mode to Soft Light 100%. Add a mask to this layer and use a soft black brush to erase the right of the fire area as I don't want it to be affected by this Gradient layer.
