[PlayRaw] Mairi Troisieme


(Andrew) #81

And one from me, RT + Gimp…

OK. Here is a colour version, purely RT5.4. The texture of the sweater is a counterpoint to the smoothness of the skin. So kept both of them illuminated.

Super late entry, but as this thread was reviewed…

Basics done in RT, then into Gimp where I used different curves on the face, hair, cardigan and background.

My attempt, with darktable.

The first is an attempt to stay in topic with the original article: “A Chiaroscuro Portrait”.
I remove base curve & tone curve & highlight reconscruction, after I brighted the image with

## contrast brightness saturation ##
saturation -1
blend mode addition
luminosity mask 0 50 50 100

and I adjusted tones with zone system

The second is more inspired by some very dark paintings by Caravaggio. I turn off base curve and I darkened the image with

## contrast brightness saturation ##
contrast +0.2
saturation -1
blend mode multiply

after I adjust tone with tone_curve (middle contrast) and

## levels system ##
mode automatic
black 0.1%
gray 55%
white 99.9%

Only tone curve & zone system (no base curve) in darktable +
skin retouch in gimp


At last

All in DT Mairi_Troisieme.ORF.xmp (13.2 KB)


RT only (little unsharp mask with Gimp)


Finally decided what to do. Here is my take.

1. PhotoFlow → HL mode (blend) → linear Rec2020 (no clipping) → 32f
2. gmic → fill unwanted pixels → smooth (guided, 1/2) → adjust brightness, contrast (curves, face) → my filter (unpublished) → contrast enhancement → rotate → crop → sharpen → resize → frame

Zoom 100% to enjoy!

I think she’s become a named storm.

Or maybe a distant galaxy.

Alternatively, one can always go down the mad route.
