Konstanz Port by Boat

I took the photo when we had left the harbor of Konstanz by boat. I did some basic editing with Darktable but would like to see what other can do to this picture preferrable in darktable to improve my editing and knowledge =).

EDIT: Some weird things going on in the sky, colour shifts, and scratchy detail with sharpening. Added some grain to disguise the artifacts a bit.

Sorry not Darktable. My play in GIMP. Exposure increase of +1EV. Levelled. Local adjustments of brightness, contrast and saturation. Cropped to a more panoramic aspect.

  1. I used the Pop 2 Lab packaged profile.
  2. I added Capture Sharpening
  3. I aligned the coast
  4. And to make the flag disappear from the top in Local Adjustments I use the modules:
    1. Color & Light to put it in Black & White
    2. Blur & Noise to blur the flag.
  5. As I have not completely hidden the flag, I make a duplicate of the previous spot.

And as fun you can obtain a sphere with G’Mic-> Deformations → Sphere. :slightly_smiling_face:
