Your edit looks fantastic in colors and clarity.
I tried to make my edited photo emphasized on the light source while keeping other parts in dark, but it seems not to be a good choice.
Hope to learn more!
For something a little bit different to the original post, I tried to bring the street scene out to make the people looked bathed in warm light. BTW, I used Filmic V5 with no preserve chrominance in an attempt to bring out the colors more. Thanks for the post and welcome to the forum. DSC04450.ARW.xmp (13.6 KB)
Just because something is different it does not make it a good or bad choice. But you have to ask yourself as a photographer why you took the picture and what is the story you want to viewer to experience. The value of playraw can often be the extreme variety of interpretations. It is a great learning place.
I set white balance to camera reference and then used the eyedropper in color calibration module to set white balance to the footpath to remove the blue cast which I felt didn’t belong in the picture of the warm afternoon glow (personal opinion only and not necessarily correct opinion)
Thanks a lot for your valuable advice.
Your edit also looks super great to me. Although the overall photo is bright, the people in the photo are focused with the warm light.
Hope to learn more on playraw!
