Nice picture, I also tried my luck
@BenBeau Your take is very similar to mine, same chromatic atmosphere.
This is the first time you post in Pixls.us, I see, so welcome on board!
@Terry Sorry for having forgotten to upload the RAW file in the first place. I would love to see your edit.
Thanks for an interesting photo to play with. I took a lot of liberty with the image and used multiple instances of exposure to relight the scene in what I hope is a more dramatic and interesting way. I made the man the focus of attention. I also played games with saturation in the background to minimise distractions.

Interesting edit! The same light all over the frame. Lot of work, I suppose
Gmic from CLI
Thank you. The comic-style elaboration seems extremely effective to me.
I’m glad you like it!
It is easy to make… I made .bat file with two gmic commands.
cl_lineart.gmic cl_lineart 0,0,2,1,15,15,1,0,6,2,2,0,0,0,50,50
Here is screenshot, in GMIC folder type name of bat file and name of image.
And gmic execute two commands cl_lineart, and fx_stamp.
two images layered with multiply filter.
I find lineart in GIMP, but to obtain it to work from command line
I put custom command, file cl_lineart.gmic into folder where is GMIC and image.
I hope you will understand how it works…
