This isn’t the most challenging image but it’s a good beginner’s exercise with filmic, tone equalizer and dynamic range I think. I shot this near sunset so there was still some blue in the sky so I’m aiming for a look with a not totally black background that still preserves the details in the lunar highlands which are a good bit brighter. Bonus points for getting some of the very faint color present in the moon to come out.
You are of course not limited to darktable. Heck, use Microsoft Word if it works for you. Don’t laugh too hard I know physics PhDs who do image editing in Word and PowerPoint.
