      To grade this picture I have used ACR7 with 2003 Process. It color balanced and I compressed the highlights played with curves a bit and create some focus to the eyes of the beast.

      Here is the result:

          Hello Garrett! I didnt see your pic in apple mobile devices here. Meanwhile in my PC everything opens fine.
          Your version dark a bit by my taste. Its hard to grade stuff like cats. It is aways a pleasure to grade something with people faces. I mean something like a face of beautiful girl. But I haven't one
          I have the beach, the train, the grass and the lake with the ducks All of the DNGs from BM official forum. This pics are too boring. Can anybody upload DNG with a face please?

            I like them both for different effect. Here's a mess around over a cup of tea at stupid o'clock in the morning This is hard and dark

            I don't have permission to upload faces aside from my own, I'll see if I can locate something at some point to upload.

            EDIT: Now that I've posted it, the left ear look weird—too contrasty

              Here is a quick attempt using Resolve 11,

              Raw WB corrected > bit of LGG adjustment > one of my LUT's I am working on

              Nothing Else.

                  It's really cool to see how many different directions everyone can go with the same cat. The cat's mood seems to change with the colors.

                  Anyway, here's a DNG for people to play around with: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8pnucpv1jh...00102.dng?dl=0

                            I threw a few from different projects over the past year in the main folder. There's an advert, horror, military day for night and a landscape out at Mojave Desert. Really interested to see the day for night from people. I worked on it for some time and still doesn't look right to me but others were cool with it. Cool thread too. I know we've talked about this before but it never really took hold.

                              Unknown, I really like your day-to-night approach! Nice job!

                              Some sad mood with a hope from me:



                              (After a hour of posting this I see clearly that too much of green saturation here).
