this is a picture I took some years ago in Paris, near Notre Dame (before the fire).
The challenge here is to render the warm atmosphere of a late afternoon with pleasing color harmony.
I went for a split complementary scheme in this edit.
I would like to thank you all for the edits!
The ones I like in particular are from @apostel338 , @Jade_NL and @s7habo.
Boris, studying your edits is always a masterclass, but I have a question: I saw you used Lowpass and Color LUT, positioned before filmic. Both are Lab modules which don’t perform well in the scene referred part of the pipeline. In fact, Color LUT clips the highlights, for example in the wall on the right. Was it intentional and if so, why?
Hm, I have not used a LUT module here. But if I use it, then it should go above Filmic. And as for it lowpass, you’re right. It doesn’t belong in scene-reffered workflow, but, since you don’t have an adequate replacement in 3.6, I use it anyway because it’s very good for the smooth contrasts. So far I have not had any artifacts. But you should avoid it in fact.
Since 3.7. there is a replacement that I use - the diffuse or sharpen module. However, at playraw I always try to use the modules that are available in the stable version of darktable, so that there are no conflicts if people don’t use a developer version.
RawTherapee Dev. I used one of my custom presets that I named 'Warm Memories" and applied a few more tweaks. (Warm memories is supposed to give somewhat of a 70s film vibe, at least that is what I tried for .) DSC05356-1.jpg.out.pp3 (21.3 KB)
