You specifically asked for darktable edits, and I did a moody/dramatic one a bit earlier. But this being Play Raw and me thinking this is a nice image to play with I had to do an edit using RawTherapee.

Different crop, not as moody (or over-the-top if you like) as my previous one. Kinda like this one better…

Welcome to forum @jjbraun!

What a beautiful shot! That play with colors and light…

As for your processing, actually it’s already pretty good. But the way I see the scene, central element is the illuminated mountain and red tree tops. That should be in the foreground. To that extent I won’t lighten the sky very much, because otherwise the depth of the scene will look flat. The darker sky just reinforces this central motif. Also, I won’t do too much local contrast on the trees in the foreground, because that will amplify the texture and make it look a bit busy.

Great shot! I’ve wanted to do a scene like this one for a while now.!


Interesting how different the edits turned out. I tried “to contain myself” to achieve a more “natural” look.

Nice picture! I really like the colors :slight_smile:
I decided to crop close to a square because I feel it gives the Image a slightly better balance. For me, the challenge was not overdoing the saturation while keeping the strong sunset glow on the highlights.

Beautiful Picture, it got some painterly feeling in it!

Another beautiful picture that tempts me to have a play.
Apologies: my try is done in GIMP.
Increased exposure by ~ 1 EV, then I used luminosity masks. The first to increase green in the darkest parts of the trees, the second to increase red where the trees have their autumn colours, and the third to increase the saturation on the snow and the lower part of the sky.
