On a day excursion from Wellington, NZ to Picton across Cook Strait, I caught the competing ferry operator with a backdrop of the Kairoura mountains … though getting appreciable mountain detail proved a challenge. There is also some vignetting, possibly from the lens, which I have not succeeded in being recognised.
Alas, I have only an underpowered laptop with no OpenCL with me whilst on vacation
I got this warning re: the lens:
I was able to manually reduce the vignetting a bit but not completely so I mostly cropped it out. I’m not that good at processing but there’s still precious little detail on the mountain. A really tough one and my results aren’t that great. There’s obvious granulation from trying to isolate and raise those tenuous distant highlights so much. Also I tried (semi-successfully at best) to offset the very bluish cast to everything… at least in the sky.
Thanks for the image. My attempt with DT 4.2.2
Couldn’t do anything with the vignetting - so decided to pretend the image is through a Captain’s Telescope. I tried hard to bring the snow closer to white - but it is what it is.
