Abstract: The low exposure image enhancement has become indispensable inimage processing for better visibility. The most challenging in image enhancement is especially to curtail overenhancement problems. This paper presents a method, performs the separation of the histogram based on respective standard intensity deviation value and then recursively equalizes all sub histograms independently. The over-enhancement problem is minimized by this method. It applies more in an underwater image, because of its low light conditions. The experiment results are analyzed in terms of entropy and output image inspection. The proposed method results show significant improvement over earlier recursive based histogram equalization algorithms.
