Though I appreciate Dylan, Hudson and the crew, my own photography tends towards a more dramatic image. I am not always going for reality but looking for a more painterly "ideal". These days seems like anyone with a cell phone can get pretty good clear conventional grading.
One method to get there is the Orton Effect, an effect that basically enhances color/contrast in blurred areas of luminance in the image. It is possible to view this a limited version of this effect in the "Glow" and "Bleach Bypass" components in Photo Raw. I would like to see On1 expand "Glow" for more control of parameters. I would like to note Luminar AI (though a vastly inferior product) has a wonderful "glow" with Orton Effects Module and some other mood enhancers and that allows me to go where On1 can't. Was wondering if there was a way to expand Photo Raw's capabilities to help make more painterly photos.
Are there other photographers that share my proclivities?
