Love the image, especially the sky! Has to be in B&W and soft in my opinion…

Thanks for sharing!

Amazing image, thanks.

Played a little with RGB curves and warm shadows - cold midtones - warm highlights seemed kinda nice. :slight_smile:

A very nice image! Thank you for sharing.


Nice rendition, thanks! There’s a hint of a halo visible even on the preview screen, though. It’s clearly evident if you pixel-peep, which is of course not someone something one should normally do, but I checked 1:1 because I had seen it on the preview.

I tried a very high-contrast, rich color approach. Not at all my usual processing style.

with Filmulator:

  • Auto CA Correct On
  • Profiled Vignetting on
  • Temperature 5000
  • Exposure Comp +1.5
  • Shadow Rolloff Point 0.0338
  • Film Area 116.8
  • Drama 100
  • White Clipping Point 0.46
  • Shadow Brightness 30
  • Highlight Brightness 1000

We’re here to play. :slight_smile:
I’ve also tried a more contrasty approach (though not as contrasty as yours, more like the one from @dirksagwitz), and I liked that version, too.

A great view! Thanks for posting

@kofa I forgot to congratulate you on this frame. I will work on it when I have the time. It will be fun.
