Good Evening. I am new to this Forum, but not to Affinity Photo which I use for a year now.
I have recently shot this image (Olympus EM5 Mark ii - 16 Mp at 200 ISO F/11 at 1/1000th second - using the "Sunset" mode at end of day) and tried to edit it from a Raw file (attached).
Sorry in advance if the below may seem trivial to most of you: I am disappointed because I can see quite some noise in the sky in the various attempts I have made to edit this picture... I followed the following workflow and wonder what is wrong:
- In Raw: Added Luminosity and Saturation. Did not add more Clarity. In details: Added Luminance noise reduction (slider up to 40%).
- Then I developed and used the "Remove Haze" filter which I very much like in general
Also I looked at the tutorial about "Noise Reduction" for Affinity Photo... That's about it really... I would be very grateful if someone could help me better understand what I did wrong, and how to get to a better result (I have attached the Raw file for convenience)?
Or am I too perfectionist?
Many thanks, Fabrice
