A first attempt with darktable

Here’s my very first edit with darktable. I’m not particularly impressed with what I managed to get, but (hopefully) I will improve!

JPG resulting from raw file developed with darktable:

JPG file directly out of camera, for comparison. Although highlights are too bright:

Challenging image. I think I overdid it on the saturation but it’s hard to balance color and brightness on this one. May be good for some B&W practice.

DT 4.0

RT 5.9 rc1
Capture Sharpening introduced by @heckflosse does miracles here. The photo looks really sharp!

It’s a great picture :+1:
Couldn’t resist, making an edit…

Very easy to oversharpen this - tried to resist the urge,
bring some structures into the sky,
balance the colors - not to contrasty,
a bit clarity, thats about it.

Thank you for the picture!

I like your edit!

Here is a screenshot of my standard processing for this image. Well exposed and easy to process image. I used auto levels adjustment in Filmic, but then tweaked the black exposure slider to reduce the darkness of the shadows.

Edit: Posted image looks flatter than on my monitor. Something lost in translation to posting on the web.

Few versions …first one is filmic then next few are sigmoid tweaks stemming from trying to be sure the hands on the clock had some detail…

I kept editing the same image so I think I lost the xmp files for each but you can get them by loading the jpgs as a sidecar if any of them spark any interest

Edit" The halo on the tree line for a couple of them was present full screen but not 100 per cent I was curious how it would export… it is due to the tone eq on the clock… tweaking the settings or masking could remove it… I think I did that in a couple of the other ones not showing it…
