some time ago “s7habo” recommended that if I get stuck with Darktable, I should contact me here.
I have a problem here that I just can’t get any further with. Maybe you could maybe help me a little. That would be great. I don’t get a clean, attractive picture from the file.
Thanks in advance.

@Mc-Marcus Welcome to the forum! Thanks for sharing your photo!
Thanks for sharing.
Photoflow, basic usage, but didn’t succeed in reducing noise.

With an experimental Filmulator build that has non-local means noise reduction, plus RawTherapee’s impulse denoise (which I haven’t pulled into Filmulator yet).
Other Filmulator settings:
- Profiled CA on
- Profiled Distortion on
- Exposure Comp -1/6
- Film Area 63
- Drama 65.4
- White Clipping Point 0.73
- Shadow Brightness 177

I love Corsica so, so much. It’s ridiculously beautiful and that picture is a great example.
I don’t work with Darktable though (yet?) so this is with RT5.8 dev.

My version of this very nice snapshot (Darktable 3.5):

Tricky one. Keeping the noise in check while trying to get detail back in the hill(s) is harder then it looks.
Thanks for sharing this one!

A very nice picture from a place with a lot of atmosphere!
Developed with Darktable 3.4.1.

Wow, that noise is even worse than with my variant. Madness.
Corsica is beautiful. A very breathtaking landscape. It’s just a shame that the Corsicans find it so difficult to speak English. Communication was sometimes incredibly difficult.
Yes exactly. I totally despair of that with this photo. Great, thank you very much for the effort.
That’s actually how I imagine it. But I personally lack the know-how how to best get to this goal, with tolerable noise. Many Thanks.
Yeah… I never managed to achieve significant results with PhF NR module.
If it were just luminance noise, I’d be satisfied, I kinda liked the grainy shadows in this rendering.
EDIT: Your comment about noise made me try another attempt, unsuccessful though. But I gladly found out that module tonemappingv3 behaves better and seems to be more flexible than the later one. I could render a more colourful sky, and less pissy-yellow as Aurélien uses to mention it. So here it goes.

this is a vkdt render. hard to strike a good balance in this one… tried to bring out the foreground without loosing the hazy look. could probably use some more contrast/sharpening, but i think that’d probably not be what it looked like. if you don’t like the haze, this might be a candidate for @heckflosse’s rt haze removal.
