In Photoflow I’ve finally managed to copy the hue from oklab to the rgb per-channel tonemapped image :slightly_smiling_face:

I like how the beach doesn’t look too dark when you look directly at it, but it’s enough to work with the sunset, which is the most-realistic 3D treatment of the edits here. I’m waiting for the sounds of happy CR3 users before trying raw again, but here’s an attempt to take @7osema 's jpeg as close as I can to that in gthumb, for fun. I quickly gave up on getting the copper color out of the rays.

Here’s my contribution. Started out in RawTherapee. I overthought the WB, but settled on something not as warm as I started out. Too cool? I’m still trying to decide. Used L-a-b Adjustments to bring out some blues and oranges. Finished up with a few tweaks in GIMP. The sensor on these Sonys create some fantastic RAW files. Thanks for posting.
