Low-light image enhancement (LLIE) aims to improve the illuminance of images due to insufficient light exposure. Recently, various lightweight learning-based LLIE methods have been proposed to handle the challenges of unfavorable prevailing low contrast, low brightness, etc. In this paper, we have streamlined the architecture of the network to the utmost degree. By utilizing the effective structural re-parameterization technique, a single convolutional layer model (SCLM) is proposed that provides global low-light enhancement as the coarsely enhanced results. In addition, we introduce a local adaptation module that learns a set of shared parameters to accomplish local illumination correction to address the issue of varied exposure levels in different image regions. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method performs favorably against the state-of-the-art LLIE methods in both objective metrics and subjective visual effects. Additionally, our method has fewer parameters and lower inference complexity compared to other learning-based schemes.
