Day out with the camera today. Sadly the light wasn’t particularly pleasing, hence my B&W conversion of the photo I took of Amulree Church, Perthshire, Scotland.
Here’s the RAW (licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 )

And my take on it, processed using Darktable.
Thanks for sharing! I tried to go for a vintage look…
@agriggio, now that is a lovely edit.
I think I’ve frustrated myself tonight trying to get a dramatic moody image, when in actual fact a straight forward image, like yours actually looks very nice indeed!
@Brian_Innes Quaint. Good ensemble of features.
@agriggio Nice processing. Suits the subjects.
to me, the picture is suggesting calm and peace, which is what I tried to emphasize with my rendering. Maybe I’d have a different opinion if I had been there…

And this one using the dehaze and shadows/highlights tools

Very nice photo @Brian_Innes. Used GIMP 2.10.8 (Partha’s version).
I thought that the subject is a graveyard, and hence keeping empty vertical space was important.
Very nice light for me!
… but very big problem with export as jpg, as you can see…
Edit: much better not using “save color profile” !!
Nice Photo @Brian_Innes ! I like a lot that soft light and color contrast.

Love the variety. Keep it up!
@s7habo: Great work! I will have a closer look at the modules graduated density, bloom and velvia that I did not realy explore up to now.
I cannot keep level with Boris and Thomas, but try my best with limited impact to the pic
@AxelG We learn by doing while having fun.
It also depends on your creative vision. What were you trying to do? If it matches the criteria, then you are successful.
My “correct” use of tools
No right way, unless it explodes pixls, then @patdavid and / or @darix will have words with you.
Nice crop BTW.
You meant “no right, no wrong…”?
