You are right, retouch tool does trick. I am using 2.7.0+3~g802f28438 and after three iterations

I see, aquarelle using three right odd significant digits

I just figured out that the warping script can be used with subtle layer blending modes on the original image can have that effect. It’s terrible at being faded and at being sharp unless one really punches it in a certain direction (perhaps using the Butterworth BP I made or local contrast…?) and adds a little noise.

However, one can also run a script which is designed to make ‘watercolours’. Here’s something I made using that, more unusual curves and the BP filter again:

Yes, at least at the easiest part of the image (top).

I tried using the vignetting tool with a positive brightness value, but couldn’t succeed.

It is possible to cancel the vignette shadow, but a circle line remains there:

Maybe the safest way to go is @Claes quick and dirt method, at the expense of loosing some pixels on the borders.


Gimp and RT:


Very nice shot!

Thanks, glad you like it. There is about 150 usable frames I will upload some more.

Wonderful view! This is my take on it using RT 5.5.

I am happy with retouch module, if I want even lighter corner I can add another instance

Liked your picture so I gave it at shot with my editing.

Thanks. I think it is very good processing since we are looking at rain is about to start weather, I went too cheerful with colors.

Hi there, my version with a tad of “pop”.
It is easy to exagerate and push saturation too much, but in this case I believe the result is pleasant and not excessive.

Here’s my version, as edited on my live stream! You can still see the process for the next two weeks at twitch.tv/chicagocameraslinger

Thank you for sharing!!

Thanks, I like it.
I revisited my processing and come up with this

My view on it is this should be more dark key, though I was the first one to go bright with vivid colors.


Almost forgot, this jpeg is additionally sharpened using GMI’C.

Very nice image. I won’t be able to do it justice ATM, but I will come back to it when I am more confident. :slight_smile: Made it 3600px instead of my usual 1800px.

1. PhotoFlow → HL mode (blend) → AMaZE → linear Rec2020 (no clipping) → linear sRGB 32f
2. gmic → crop (1.5:1) → filter pixels → HLG (curve) → blend (Retinex) → sharpen (high freq contrast) → adjust brightness, contrast (curves) → local contrast, sharpness (guided) → increase chroma (curve) → sharpen (LoG) → resize (3600)

Zoom 100% and enjoy!
