I’d given this up for lost. The RX-100’s chromatic aberration on the edges had ruined it. Then I looked at another approach. This is a crop from the center, much massaged. Lots of selective sharpening and minus Clarity combined with selective increase and decrease in Vibrance. No fancy filters. Ever.
An exercise in soft, made while listening to Derek Hunter Wilson’s new album — an exercise in soft minimalism in itself.
