A very nice Sunset

I want to see what people can do with this image using ANY software!

My take, with a slightly tungsten film look (wb 3500), but more saturated:

Inspired by everyone’s pictures, warmer and darker:

Thanks for sharing.

@ilia3101 Can you share some info, and possibly sidecars, about your edits? I don’t think these edits were done with either RawTherapee, darktable or GIMP for as far as I can tell. Just noticed the experimental program bit… I need to learn to read more carefully!


Nice picture. Here’s my try:

Thanks for sharing!
EDIT: updated with better handling of highlights


Yes, the sunset is very beautiful. But it was hard for me to create a version with believable colors. That’s why I also made a black and white edit.

Filmulator and Gimp for the glossy Trapper-Keeper look.


That would fit nicely in a 70s interior!


:+1: Looks great now.

similar to my version. like this color scheme. but in rawtherapee why not try to do it?

I think your first version, in some way, looks most realistic to how it actually appeared.

Although the sun looked significantly orange in real life, not white, I wonder if this can be replicated accurately.
