Yes it’s from the embedded thumbnail/preview but when i look it with windows photo viewer his size is the same as the raw file
With RT locallab_dev, a locallab spot on the flower bunch to emphasize the center, and an Ektachrome sim to reddify the fuchsia.
Your mother is welcome at my house anytime!
Here’s mine with DT and GIMP. For some reason, I thought it very important that the green be brought back to the leaves. Now, I wish I’d stuck with the blue and gone for a more contrasty look.
Here’s my take on it
and the PP3

The edit is based on a preset I made to immitate the look of Steve McCurry’s work some form of contrasty dark gritty Kodachrome
Oh and @afre, thanks for sharing
@HIRAM The reds remind me of cut roses in a bouquet. Nicely done. If you could share your
pp3, your post would be complete .
@MLC I agree– the background could use some contrast. As for the blue, while I made positive comments about it, I would be careful not to overdo it. Nothing is stopping you from doing another take .
@stefan.chirila Love the tonality. The thing I would reconsider is the flower. Make it pop !
@afre how would I make the flower pop? I mean I could Gimp it …but otherwise?
And thanks for the kind words!
@stefan.chirila There are many ways to isolate and make the flower pop in RT. First thing to do is to check out the others’
pp3s for ideas.
@Morgan_Hardwood Reminds me of childhood: crayons, highlighters, food dyes, color-changing cars, and the enigmatic characters and set pieces of graphic, fantasy and sci-fi novels.
Sorry that the raws weren’t very good. Took them in a hurry with shaky hands with arm, neck and back pain. Thanks for taking things to the next level with your post-processing !
