A shot I took back in 2013 with a 200mm lens on my Canon Ti4. Thought it might make for some free-roaming Wild West RAW-hide play…

I love it! My try in darktable 4

@Tim Beautiful range of colors, nicely hued.

Seriously though, nice picture.
I used darktable 4.1.
Thanks for posting

@Jean-Marc_Digne Nice tone separation… close to how I remember those guys looking at the time.

Thanks for sharing. For me it was essential to remove the distracting feet in the distance and also get some negative space at the upper edge of the image …
My initial edit:
After I have again noticed how much I suck in color editing and then have carefully stolen some insights from
I still like
@123sg’s edit more regarding colors, but still the crop, negative space etc. is crucial to me.

Excellent call. I totally missed those stray feet. A clear improvement through cropping.

Unfortunately, this time, cropping was not enough, I had to rely on darktable’s retouch module. It’s not only the feet that are gone, there’s more if you look closely
. Even doing this quickly, the fact that it does not leap to the eye means that the result is not too bad . xmp is in the jpg if you want to have a deeper look.

I’m very much still learning so I wouldn’t suggest my technique is the “right way” to do it…
Glad you liked it though. Actually, I think you’ve improved on my colours! The removed distractions work well too.
