The stage coach – DxO Filmpack for free

When in Argentina, it makes me smile to sometimes see horses pulling carts in large cities, a scene long forgotten in Europe. So imagine my surprise this afternoon when I witnessed these scene in my tiny hometown in Switzerland. While there most probably wasn’t any rye for the horses like in the stage coaches times, the riders did get some ref(ue)illing.

Also, you might have noticed the unusual processing of this picture. I am currently testing DxO Filmpack which provides some great presets to modify the rendering of your pictures. My end goal is obviously not to replicate the film look (you simply can’t) but find new creative ways.

Note that Filmpack 3 is free to download (no expiration time) until October 31st, so if this is of any interest to you, head here to grab it :  . I am not sure I will incorporate it in my worklow in the future, but it is definitely a great tool to experiment with. (click on picture for high res)
