Enhancement of low illumination images is of great importance in poor imaging conditions. A new image enhancement model was proposed in this paper. The model divided an image into blocks and used the local standard deviation to design the center/surround filter and utilized amplitude compensation factor to compensate the shortage of logarithmic function in compressing the near-zero data’s amplitude. In addition, the amplitude compensation factor can suppress noise. At the same time, the normalized brightness can maintain the normal brightness region of the image while the brightness of the image is increased. In order to verify the performance of the proposed model, the proposed model and existing models are applied to image enhancement. To evaluate its performance in image enhancement, results are compared from the subjective and objective aspects. The experimental results show that the proposed model preserved the image details better and avoided the excessive enhancement of the normal brightness region.
