Technically not my best shot (no excuses). Might be fun to play with nonetheless :grin:

Are you kidding? It’s absolutely beautiful, tone,color, composition.

Here’s my take in rawproc:


A bit lighter hand with duiker filmic, a bit of HSL color saturation, and a slight crop of the bottom.

The orange tickles in the trees and clouds along with the mist gives the whole image a pastel feeling… Nice!

Oh, I do like the composition and the edit! I did mess up the DOF/Sharpness that would have done this shot a lot of good.

Yeah, its that time of year for this particular piece of land; sun up just at the correct time. And we also had a late summer (or very early autumn) storm a few days back, which always produces some nice sunrises.

Love this picture. Wish I had been there!

I like the two versions already posted, thought I’d take a stab at it and see what I came up with. It’s a bit more punchy than what has already been posted, but what the heck! Gotta have different takes. BTW, done with darktable 3.2.1

Here is what I came up with. It’s a beautiful image to work with. And IMO, the sky probably wouldn’t be a saturated blue that early in the morning.

With Filmulator:

I decided not to correct the distortion, but I did do:

  • Auto CA Correct 1
  • Profiled Vignetting on
  • Film area reduced
  • Drama 68
  • White Clipping Point 0.47
  • Vibrance 100

The default profile from LibRaw is very very desaturated, almost monochrome.

Left lens correction off as I like the tree on the right, and there are no obviously distorted straight lines.

Nice edits. You reminded me, again, to try a B&W version.

Yeah. It was blue, but I did give it a small boost.

I like the overall look of your edit, but it is a bit flat (washed-out). Try experimenting with the local contrast module. Just turning it on will improve the edit.

My edit in Darktable. I have LR on another (Windows) pc so can’t try that now.
I made the grass a little lighter and somehwat more saturation.

Going for a soft, dreamy look

@Jean-Marc_Digne : That’s a really nice edit! Like the darker overall, sun’s-not-fully-there-yet, look.

Great image! Actually, there is not much you have to do to this shot.

Of course you can :wink: . I went for a moderate hazy warm look.

I had to try a b&w version, too.
