I’ve this photo I tok a while back with my Canon 70D. I’m trying to edit it using darktable, rawtherapee but also lightroom for comparison. I Just imported them, and no processing.
Righ off the bat, the image is displayed completey differently. I want to specifically understand how the halo around the light (for the red box) is handled.
Lightroom seems to smooth a lot the centre of the light to a smooth gradientto the red
RAWTherapee has a small ring separating the whites and the reds, but quite smooth
Darktable (using the scene referred workflow) has defined rings.
Here are screenshot, and my questions below:
Darktable, at the “original” step of history
Darkatble, at the last step of the scene-referred workflow
RAWTherapee, just imported
Question 1 : Seeing te 3 different render, does the ring really exists in the CR2 file and the “smooting” we see in RAWTherapee and lightroom are processed ?
Question 2 : In Darktable,what would be th process to smooth the rings to get something similar to RAWTherapee or Lightroom ?
Question 3 : Does RAWTherapee has some processing that is not shown in the history so that their is some smoothing ?
Thanks. I’m trying to better understand all these processing and learn
