yet another sunset over the lake...

Not a particularly original picture, but I think it’s not bad for a 175 Euros camera that can also surf the web and make phone calls. Sometimes the default JPG processing is a bit too much, but the raw files give you a lot of latitude. What do you think?

Nice scene! And technically not too bad for a universal purpose camera :laughing:

Had a hard time in trying to apply a parametric mask in darktable to the exposure module, and gave up in the end due to too many color artifacts. It’s been a while since I’ve used parametric masks so I believe the new linear workflow requires relearning masks.

I like to process with details in the shadows. There was a lot of noise in there, but not unusable. Could have pushed denoise a lot more too, but I don’t need perfect smoothness - am happy if it can somewhat resemble film grain.

Edit: What causes the scratchy artefacts seen in fine details, like the grass to the left of the ducks?

Gloomy. I like it.

Nice shot @agriggio. May be you can add Mobile Photography Category in addition to the Play Raw. Here is an attempt using RT 5.8

If you didn’t tell us, I probably wouldn’t notice it has been snapped with a mobile phone :blush:

that’s my feeling too. This phone is so good that it could easily be the only camera I need. It certainly helps that I’m not a pixel peeper, and for sure when I have the camera with me I much prefer using that, but unless I’m specifically planning to take pictures, I feel no need to carry the camera with me anymore…
Here’s another example:

Are there differences? Yes, definitely. But are they significant for this kind of shots? Not for me, especially when downsized for web view and/or small prints. But you need to shoot raw, the jpg output of the phone is really terrible at times…

My take on this one… very nice sunset!

Used Photoflow as usual.

I like this so much you inspired me to make mine better. The answer? Retain some sky drama by applying a gradient mask to filmic! (And some extra sharpening) I might have to get photoflow to see how yours was done.

This is what tags are for. We probably need less categories, not more :slight_smile:

My bad. I meant tag. Not category!
