was it yesterday or the day before - time stands still at the moment in lock down. But as a storm front approached at sunset, we had a rainbow to our northeast, sunset to the west and storm clouds to the south east

The sunset, more or less as it was, pushed the saturation up a bit.

To the north was the rainbow - a double one - applied equalise filter then turned it bnw

and to the southeast was the approaching storm cloud lit up by the sunset but you have to guess what it looked like in reality because I inverted the colours -

The false color attempt looks promising for more :) Oh, and did I read "saturated" in the first?... Tzzz tzz tzz... :rolleyes:

It's still a very nice picture :)

Two pics from today's ration of outdoor exercise-cum-dog-walk. Processed in Lightroom plus Analog Efex Pro 2, film effect.

Terrific Sir, and exactly what I was after with the theme! The colors look just slightly... surreal. Great. Pleasing. Warm and cold at the same time. The transition from the rather ... defined, strong foreground to the distant image layers... is just fantastic! Well, well done! (y)

One more from the "woodworks" series:


Pyramid
(slightly desaturated on the blocks, and heavily in the background, using a brushed mask)

These two are inspired by the M series beemer... I have colored vehicles around to take pictures of, also. Well, Luca has. I tried to desaturate everything but the main colors:

Speaking of "garden": We enjoyed a great, warm day outside. So happy we got this possiblity now, to go out. We would be allowed to go to the woods, there's no ban to go outside in general... But it makes things so much easier for the kids. And dad, hanging around and taking pictures...

Sound proofing
(We were cutting the moss out of the lawn with this thing that looks a bit like a lawn mower but doesn't mow but cut the upper ground layers with rotating knives...)

Oh, and I tried one more of these split toned attempts: cooler, blue in the shadows, warmer in the middles, and bright tones yet another touch more orange.

Roland - Your CS theme is one that "stretches" many of us, and that is a *very good thing*. I've tried to comply with the processed snap below, but suspect I've fallen a bit short, given your superb examples. We birded the ponds along the Colorado River for about 4 miles on today's sunny afternoon, and saw perhaps 20 Cinnamon Teal, among other delights. Here goes:

You normally (??) like your colors saturated ? ;)
When I was editing this image I tried to keep it subdued, didn't kick up the colors as much as I often would do, and, well, even so I wasn't as successful as I had intended, but decided to share the image anyway.... Doing something like "split-toning" and such, with only part of the image saturated and the rest desaturated, is definitely beyond my skill set.

Staying at home and checking the wine cellar. Shall I open this bottle tonight?

Hey I like your photo, sorry if I wasn't clear. I can certainly see the different approach, and it also works the way it is - which does not say it would not in the way you normally present this kind of work ;)

Learning how to work selectively in the image was, who wonders, one of the reasons to come up with the rather strange, maybe difficult theme - as one possibility. Hey, I got to learn that C1 and got to fail to do so by overcooking ;)

Normally, I like my images contrasty and saturated, too. Challenging myself here to see what the sliders to when pulled the opposite direction :)
It is perfectly OK to apply global changes only.
