RAW "Mini-Challenge" - first serious shot with A7IV

Hello @ all in forum 1064,
following the suggestion by "deednets" to see if a "RAW Mini-Challenge" might work around here, below the public Dropbox link to a RAW file to throw your editing suggestions at it:

collected feedback in the recent "weekly" thread along

  • try to get the centre tree completely centred - or out of the centre?
  • Black and white plus a decentred highlight onto the tracks part might add

Hence, happy (and curious) to see whether such challenge takes off here and if, what will the results be. Thanks in advance to all joining the fun for throwing some effort at the file!

P.S.: For Info: As I still use my late MacMini 2012 and Aperture (yikes) the Raw is a DNG as my latest Apple OS running here (10.15) does NOT support the A7IV RAW files. Thankfully, Adobe DNG converter 14.5 runs on 10.15 and takes care of the A7IV RAWs. how to get better at that is matter for a different thread.
