Shenandoah Waterfall

This is one of the many waterfalls off of White Oak Canyon and was taken in early October when the fall colors where just starting to come in. I like my edit but for some reason i’m not entirely satisfied with it so i’m curious what y’all can do!

Wysyłanie: DSCF5760-SNS-HDR_Default-GIMP-LAB.jpg
With the persistence of a maniac, again SNS-HDR Lite profile Default => GIMP => LAB
Similar result RAW => Windows => Photos, or darkable with GIMP => LAB

This is one of those shots which you can only ruin by extensive editing. Very nice job!

Tim, take no offense, but I believe you white balance is off in this edit (it looks too greenish to me). If I whitebalance your edit according to water color it becomes much better.

Wow! That is sharp.

I agree. I was trying to use Color Calibration AI Surface Detect. That is what I got.

Later, I re-did it for warmer colors like everyone else was getting. The only way I could make it work was selecting Custom and forcing the warmer colors. Then, the module told me I had done it wrong. It said, “5814K (invalid)”. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

Here is my re-worked image:

From the manual:

When the CCT is followed by (invalid), this means that the CCT figure is meaningless and most likely wrong

You are not wrong; what is wrong is the number Darktable is showing you (5814K in this case).

I went for the “dreamy” look.

Somehow many details fought against each other; colorfulness of trees with restless leaf texture versus play of falling water. I muted the leaves a bit and highlighted the waterfall. This improved the depth of the scene.

I used darktable and GIMP.
