[PlayRaw] Sailing Scene @ Garda Lake


(Jilles Van Gurp) #21

I wasn’t happy with the previous version and worked a bit on color and lightness using the previous as a starting point. Split toning helps get rid of the yellow cast in the sky. Also managed to brighten the whole scene without destroying the detail and worked on bringing out local contrast in the shadows. There’s still a bit of a halo around the mountain. But overall this looks very different from the unprocessed raw.

@yteaot Much better. Despite being critical :face_with_monocle:, I always appreciate your entries because they bring out a lot of the detail that I would otherwise miss in others’ work.


I see a little bit or red but this seems very natural to me! good work

@dinasset Could you please share your processing steps or sidecar?

I am a little late. So many different interpretations already posted. Nevertheless, here’S my try.

RawTherapee only. A bit on the old fashioned side. Maybe a tad over-sharpened. Oh well… Here goes nothing :slight_smile:

BTW @Ivan_M76 this is a fabulous capture! Well composed, clicked at just the right time with just the right settings. May we all create works such as this someday :slight_smile: Love it :heart:

Nice shot! Here is my attempt at it.

More work than at first expected. Trying to get pleasing colors, and working on the water.

fun play. This is the best I could do. I had to apply quite a bit of masking, and I’m still not sure that the colours are realistic, but here it goes…

(Stefan Chirila) #38

this is real pretty. is this in RT? if yes, pp3? :stuck_out_tongue: Please and Thank you! :smiley:


I don’t know. Sometimes @agriggio can’t share his pp3. He must have a RT from the future.

Sometimes @agriggio can’t share his pp3.
it’s not that I can’t, but it simply won’t be useful to anyone…

He must have a RT from the future.

more from a parallel universe :slight_smile:
I’m using a custom version of RT, which is basically my playground/workbench, where I try things out.

anyway, I’ll try to describe the steps (not now though), it’s definitely possible to apply them with other tools


Future sounds better. Parallel is just confusing. :stuck_out_tongue: Anyway, I am interested in your workflow too. Deals with the haze issue quite nicely. I need to do a slightly more earnest attempt of dehazing one day.
