Autumn is here again, it’s that time of the year when you struggle desperately to reproduce the colors on screen which blew you away while you were out in the woods, only to realize that your hardware sucks, your software sucks, you don’t know what you’re doing and you should have become a politician instead.
Here is a photo of one such foggy day in the woods. There was not-light-but-not-too-heavy mist everywhere, the woods felt dreamy and quiet and the patch of light behind the curve made those leaves glow.

I will post the PP3 later - the only reason for the delay is so that it doesn’t influence your take on the subject. Updated 2016-10-30 - PP3: 2016-10-16_soderasen_12.arw.pp3 (10.7 KB)
It would make comparing easier if we all used the same JPEG size, mine is 1040px high (without the 40px high frame).
