Magic light in autumn with 23 f/2, 35 f/1.4 and X-T4

Dear Fujians

Today, there was a "magic light". Somehow soft and bright at the same time. Sometimes it is just there - difficult to describe, easy to notice.

It is a Saturday, so I could afford to take some time in a wonderful autumn forest. I took with me only my 23 mm f/2 and 35 mm f/1.4.

Especially the 23 mm f/2 is known to be not sharp at close distance wide open (I fully confirm this), but as you stop down, resolution gets really good.

Exposure was mostly set manually.

The photos are OOC or processed with darktable according to my workflow. All photos use Classic Chrome resp. Stuart Sowerby's LUT. No special sharpening was applied, just my usual jpeg (Sharpening +1) or darktable settings.

The Logo was added with GIMP (for the OOC jpegs) or with darktable.

All photos were done with my X-T4 (see how to how to make the X-T4 show up in darktable's lens correction profile).

The price I paid was a portion of dog sh... on my shoes. So, well

35 mm, f/5.6, OOC

35 mm, f/5.6, darktable, played with tone curve (tone equalizer)

35 mm, f/2.8, darktable, played with tone curve

35 mm, f/4.5, darktable, played with tone curve

35 mm, f/4, darktable, played with tone curve

35 mm, f/4, darktable, played with tone curve

23 mm, f/8, darktable, played with tone curve

23 mm, f/5.6, darktable, played with tone curve

23 mm, f/5.6, OOC

Comments welcome.

Cheers,

Martin
