Thanks for the explanation about the sharpening and local contrast filters. After looking closer at my image, I think it doesn’t need much detail enhancements, but rather mostly noise reduction.
This is an image that I already processed in the past with Lightroom, so I’ll append the LR version at the end. This is how it opens in PF out of the box:
With +1 exposure in the RAW development filter, and with the Relight filter and minor add of saturation, it looks like this:
I think I could do better, but I’m still not experienced enough with PF. For example, I could set a lower exposure value in the RAW Development filter, and apply the Relight at a higher strength. I think I clipped the clouds too much with the +1 exposure.
I also think I should have added more ‘pop’ to the image but I’m not sure how - I find the contrast control in the ‘basic adjustments’ filter is too aggressive.
I also wanted to apply some adjustment to the WB on the people holding the baby - since they are in the shade and the global WB is not ideal for their skin tone, so I added a WB layer but found it difficult to mask out the rest of the image and to find the right values - small changes to the temp/tint result in too big visual changes so it’s hard to find the value you look for. This is something I originally did in LR (see below).
This is the LR version that I developed a few months ago, which is pretty similar:
LR global settings:
LR local adjustments on the people in the front:
