Processed entirely in Rawtherapee using the “Cine V” dcp as a starting point, and then used color toning.

My try with RT 5.7 dev. I focused on maximizing fine detail at the expense of keeping some noise…

first step – RT,
second step – GMIC (some Tone mapping [fast], Equalize local histograms, Simple local contrast, Pop shadow, -fx_mix_rgb, Graphic novel),
last step – NIK Color Efex (little bit brilliance/warmth and tonal contrast).

Thanks haha!

Looks good man, unfortunately I can’t open the second image!
