Dark Leaf

Yesterday I took RAW low-key photos and on the camera LCD they looked nicely dark.

When uploaded to editting program PhotoScapeX they were so disappointingly grey and bright. On Windows 10 they are beautifully dark and on Affinity quite dark.

I'm very confused!

This is more what I was aiming for yesterday, and I played the levels and sharpness in Affinity
These things are beyond me, but it's a lovely and dramatic capture.

no idea why, maybe photoscape is using a different colour mode

As you have the files in RAW, try to give it more intermediate light so that it does not affect the bright areas

Really strange, at least you found one that was working for you.

Well this turned out quite elegant.

I’m not sure I understand everything you are saying but I do like these results. FAV

o boy... I would be confused to. At the moment I am only able to slide some slides back and fort.
Whatever you did, this ended up gorgeous, nice and dark, just enough light to keep looking it over again.

Very hard to learn from something that gives inconsistent results. I thought yesterday’s image was terrific with good lighting and nice details. This one is so dark I can hardly see it. Don’t know what to say about that.

wonderful very low-key image...i'm confused just looking at the screen when I do images!

They are a bit too dark to see on my computer screen. I have noticed that often a dark photo is darker when I upload it to this site. The curve and side lighting seem nice.

Technology has so many sneaky secrets! And then this changes enormously if I lean the screen back or forward!

Photo processing has so many variables. Software, monitor, printers, etc. It's truly difficult to get consistent results with so many different "players"!

Great result.
What was the histogram like? Did you have full black on it and it was on the left side?

@30pics4jackiesdiamond LOL you are so funny!

No not fail! I think it’s a difficult thing when the one that looks good on your device is not good on mine and the other way around.
