What's this, magic? I especially like the second with its 'layers' of depth.

...and the clouds moving in opposite directions. Nice.

Rajan.
#2 for me.altho #1 is no slouch.
A question: is this a monochrome, a full color, or a toned image?

Thank you, all.

Richard - the original scene was mostly monochromatic. The RAW was converted using Tony Kuyper's TK7 panel using the zone mask technique which selects a narrow part of the tonal spectrum which can then be modified. It is a very powerful method and is outlined by Tony here (it is the second method described).

Thank you Rajan.
It looks a very effective and complicated program.

Normally I love all your work. Maybe the second one here, but it doesn't feel as spectacular as what I feel like we usually get from you.

I think the second one is really stunning Rajan and in a completely understated sort of way - I know I would struggle to process a file like that, as I also know I would be very tempted to try and punch in some higher toned contrasts to lift up those foggy highlights out from the background, but don't touch it, as the more I look at it, the more I realise how it is pretty much perfect just the way it is.

I agree with you Dave.
#2 is a quiet rendition of a subtle image, more of a meditation then an exclamation.
As I keep seeing again and again, Rajan is like a poet with a lens.
And here he comes close to murmuring a prayer.

Thank you, Dave & Richard.

Richard - apropos of your earlier remark about "complicated program" - it may be quite involved under the hood but for the user, the panel is easy to learn. And the conversion is essentially a luminosity mask. The panel enables you to generate them quickly based on either luminosity, saturation, vibrance, or specific colour(s).

Thanks Rajan for bringing that to our attention :)
