Juvie Bald Eagle

Juvenile bald eagle taken this past Wednesday that I’ve been playing with.

The cropped and developed version from Affinity Photo:


My dark table version:

I’m a lot happier with the sharpness and noise but I need to tweak my color skills in DT.

Which raw developer did you use? I feel like my first attempt using DT looks slightly de-saturated and the lack of (or rather complete blow-out) of the sky needs attention. Cheers! - Gary

@Henry_Falkner Welcome to the forum and thanks for participating!

While we welcome any edit, we prefer focusing on using FLOSS software; e.g., those listed in https://discuss.pixls.us/c/software/9, etc. Give them a try and compare with your go-to apps.

Actually @afre this discussion started elsewhere and I’m the reason Henry posted here. I didn’t know what he was using. In any event, I need to do better with DT and probably ought to DL the most current version. Now that I’m doing more with raw, I’m blown away by DT!

Then you may want to build from dev. :wink:

Just so you are aware: The links you create, here but also on all your other edits do not point to anything. They show up as clickable, but they are empty.

Processed in Rawtherapee, cropped in GIMP.

Something wonky is going on between the RGB curves and vignette/grad filter. Do those two tools maybe cancel out the RGB curves? I never noticed that before but here I made pretty hard adjustments to get some color into the sky.

Can someone load my pp3 and switch on the vignette to verify?

Second try.
