The making of - open source software or not?

I’ve done a small write-up on my own (non-commercial) web-blog about the making of this image using both a fully open-source workflow versus a workflow using a few commercial tools. Centerpiece of both workflows is Darktable 3.8.1 to keep things relatively comparable.

The link to my little write-up is here

The final image I created is:


Very cool! Glad to see FLOSS can hang with commercial software.

It would be interesting to see a “free” version with some local contrast added in the LDR processing, I’m thinking that would make it closer to the non-free result perhaps.
