Senja Peninsula

First looks at new Haze Removal module in Darktable

Quite the dramatic mountain, this shot is from the Senja peninsula north of Norway. The original image needed heavy use of tone mapping and Lab color levels, but all the information was there in the RAW. I take an initial look at the Haze Removal module included in the development version of Darktable, and give an extra example to demonstrate its power and ease of use.

Thank you for your RAW contribution Julien. It was fun to work with and a breathtaking scene.

A fun image with lots of dynamic range

I had so much fun with this shot. The colors came out vibrant, even with the cloudy skies. I approached the shadows with a little bit of several different strategies to get the most from my RAW.
