RawTherapee 5.5 is awesome

I’m currently taking some pictures twice, once on film (as I wrote in an earlier blog post, I’m back to film), and for comparison reasons I take some of them digitally as well.

Plus I’m currently checking out the new RawTherapee version 5.5 which I got with upgrading my Debian OS from version 9 (“Stretch”) to the current stable version 10 (“Buster”). And that new version of RawTherapee is again better than its predecessor, I especially like the auto-generated tone curves (which take settings from the embedded jpg in the raw file, pretty much looks like Olympus colours now), and I also like some of the film simulations like Kodak Portra 160VC for colour, or 400TX (“Tri-X”) for black & white.

So here’s one of those images I took twice, and I called this one “Evening Light”:

Just the low setting sun shining through the half open shades onto our dining table. I will show the result on real film (Kodak Gold 200) as soon as I’ll have it.

As always, thanks for viewing, and for reading.
