Waves at Shore Acres Oregon

Pretty new to darktable and I am struggling to achieve the same results as I can with Capture One which I have been using for years. I will be grateful for any suggestions.

Hi, I think in your picture there is very agressive sharpening. Here my edit in DT 3.4

Wasn’t expecting such a wave :flushed:
Great shot, went for the protagonist and some mood:

Hi, I’m new! Thought I might as well start playing with this amazing picture. :slight_smile:

I think this image benefits from a 4:3 crop. Makes the splash more prominent and leaves only one tree for scale. I also cropped away the kind of distracting pool of water in the lower right corner.

Deceivingly Fun!

Wanted to lift the shadows, proved more challenging than I thought. I messed wtih the filmic curve to get it close, then shaped it with a separate control point curve. Bit too blue, so I added a second white balance on top of as-shot to scooch the blue channel left. Bit of denoise, and voila. In rawproc:
