The above autumn image was a raw photograph created in Fujifilm X-T4 with a film simulation recipe, Retro Red.*
Within Capture One 23, I did a bit of light and shadow adjustment, cropped and removed some leaves, and set clarity at 2.
The image on the left was further edited with a Capture One preset, DF-03-Arapaho (bright).
I then hopped over to Color Efex 4 Pro and added a glamour glow layer to create a light softness to the image.
This week Bren invites photographers to explore editing softness into their creative work. I hope you enjoy.

Stunning… I just how you’ve captured those fall colours in the leaves and enhanced them with softening. Brilliant edit. xx
Thank you Bren. I enjoy challenges that invite an exploration of another facet of photography
You are welcome, just pleased you like the challenge…
Love the softness you have brought to autumn. So often we think we need to find the biggest and brightest of colors in the landscape.You have convinced me that isn’t the case. Such a cal to the photos. Well done.
Thank you for your words. I experience them to be inspiring
brenda, this post felt like a conversation – or a place that just had some great chatting – love the mood and softness
Love the way you’ve used the light in your opening images Brenda, and your Glamour Glow as well. I’ve not used that before but will now!!
Thank you Tina.
