To improve my understanding of darktable to obtain a specific look, sometimes I enjoy triyng to replicate a sooc image, often generating a style afterwards.
But there are times when I cannot grasp how to replicate the sooc image within an acceptable level of accuracy.
I give myself just one rule in these cases: to not use any drawn masks, as I suppose that the camera doesn’t use any, so it may be possibile to obtain that look without them.
Here attached there is an example where I have a really hard time to replicate the sooc from my fuji x-t3 (velvia simulation with some tweaks in shadows/highlights in camera).
I find the hardest time to differentiate the color of the farthest and nearest hills. In the raw are very similar but in the Sooc the farthest are quite greenish and the nearest a lot more reddish.
Also nailing the sky without using drawn mask is also a challenge.
Can you help me to figure out how to proceed?
PS: excuse me for my english
