Captured this in Paris the other day. Would love to see your edits on this.

This is the Raw file. Below is the edit I came up with.

Thanks for sharing. Looks like a good opportunity for people to attempt a deblur.

Since the image is somewhat soft, I thought of an old post-card effect. Done essentially in RT 5.7, used GIMP (well, G’MIC actually) only to put a frame with text around it. Cropped a larger frame to make it more dynamic and the text color is picked from the clock dial!

This is what I get with some experimental deblurring code on top of darktable 3.0rc1 and a Kodachrome-ish colour adjustment.
