I have the same problem with my em5 mkii and em1 mkiii photos, which have, against the jpeg in the raw, missing red and too much yellow . Its a bit better when i use not the latest filmic rgb preset (better with 2021).
ATM i am not sure if it is my view-brain-remember problem or a real one. But i found it interesting to read here about the same “feeling”, or issue.
The light in the morning and evening is more yellow than mid day. Looks like you have a decent, middle of the road white balance: shadows are slightly blue, highlights are warm, other things like the clouds are more neutral. Maybe you even have a hint of alpine glow so its a touch red. I don’t see the issue here.
Your second image seems realistic.
In your first image, I think you pushed the highlights too much. That causes oranges to shift to yellow. The how and why is very well explained in this video by @s7habo.
Most cameras include a JPG version in the raw file that is used for previews. My Nikon DSLR, and many others, include a full-resolution version, process using whatever settings / colour effects / contrast settings you had active in the camera.
If you don’t use the waveform for your histogram I highly suggest you start. It makes it so easy to analyse your photo. And start without filmic so you can really see what you are starting with… get your exposure and then when you apply filmic and or other adjustments you will see what happens and better know how to adjust it…the waveform will give you information about the color channels in regions of your photo…
The first image resulted from my attempt to upload the raw file. In fact, it should be the OOC jpeg embedded in the raw file. (BTW I need to upload the raw file again, putting it in a zip archive first).
The second image is my developed version.
I thought that was the case, but if I reduce exposure, the yellow hue is still there. Plus, I would expect filmic rgb to address such issues, as explained in the video you linked.
Hi solitone, as kofa explains, when i make a duplicate of my image in the beginning of a scene refered workflow, than in lightroom i see the jpeg which is inside the raw.
And than, when i work on the duplicate in darktable, i can compare my work on the duplicate with the jpeg in the raw in lightroom.
Yes its a jpeg, with all stuff olympus does with it, but my first impression was, why the hell is it so brown and yellow, where are the reds. In beginning of decembre i made a foto of two horses and a second one of a tree with old red brownish leaves. First impression when i begin in darkroom:
all yellowish and no contrast
With the help of a good friend, we worked it out with exposure, filmic (yes 2022) and colour balance.
Are you wondering why it’s yellow rather than reddish/orange as in the low exposure edit? Or are you wondering why the peak has a warmer tone?
Clearly the morning sun is hitting the peak and it should have a warmer tone than the side of the mountain. I do think that the way the yellow looks in your edit isn’t great. It looks sort of flat and unnatural.
If you use Sigmoid tone mapping (default settings) the highlights will have more red in them.
