Wow, feels like old school post card on acid :smiley:


I love it in someway. When playing with this image today in the afternoon I almost got there after too much playing with it :slight_smile:

After watching your XMP I found you rely on a LUT but I wonder if it would be replicable with color lookup table or something else …

Once the contrast and details job done maybe gimp would be a better tool for the job …

Indeed, I have used a LUT, it is my first time…
My intention was to make a black and white version.

My intention was to make a black and white version.
While I was playing with this beautiful photo and was about to finish it, I remembered a trick that @difrkaguilar recently shared with me.
It’s a false color LUT to visualize the different exposure areas of an image and better compensate for highlights and shadows, but as soon as I turned it on, I liked how it looked and changed my plans.
If you are interested in the LUT, I have no problem sharing it.

The truth is that I do not master gimp.


I’d be delighted :smiley:

A polarising filter helps of course, but yes, the water in the loch is extremely clear.

Here you have it…@difrkaguilar ,besides sharing the LUT’s… made a graph to put as a watermark (reference).

I would like to thank you again for your generosity

This really works, I love the squaring of the image, monochrome pallet, clarity & sharpness you’ve achieved. Though I think I would have liked to see the wateline treat as the horizon & leveled. really nice though.

I really like this image, did you invert the colours ? Has a Chinese/japanese art feel to it. I like that you’ve leveled the water. congrats on a really nice image,
