Hey everyone. Long time, no see! I did a little photo experiment the other night, and would like to see what you do with this.
The picture was taken on the beach after sunset. I set up a strobe light to light the model, then did a timed exposure while spinning the camera to create the pink and blue swirls behind and around her.
In RawTherapee, I wanted the color from the sky to be more saturated, and did a decent job using the CL and CC adjustments. But then her skin got way too saturated. So I wound up outputting two different TIFF files, one with the LAB adjustments turned on, and one with the LAB adjustments off. Then I put them into the Gimp as layers, and masked out the woman’s skin. My result:
