I rather like it! The texture of the wood comes out very nicely.

I've always wondered what portaits and landscapes would look like with CC, but with the color (saturation) boosted to +2 or so. Especially skin tones sometimes look a bit flat to my eyes in regular CC, and I wonder if boosting color /saturation would bring them to life or if it would create unwanted blotches of color...

Was able to get out and shoot some today with this simulation. Still tweaking it. Not liking the grain, so in the future will shoot without it.

Only thing done in post was straightening and cropping. Tones and color are all SOOC options as outlined below.

This one is supposed to be close to a Kodachrome.

Film Simulation = Classic Chrome
Sharpness = +1
Shadows = +2
Highlights = +1
Grain = Weak
Noise Reduction = -3
Dynamic Range = DR200
White Balance = Auto, +3 Red, - Blue
Color = -1
ISO = Auto (6400)
Exposure Comp = +1/3 to +2/3

A few favorites from today, just out and about trying to get some captures between storms.

I like the look! Often I find CC to be a bit too "bleach bypass" looking, preferring it with a boost in color / saturation... But especially with the ducka in the water shot, the silvery effect looks perfect. And in the shot of the couple walking their dog, the skin tones actually aren't too grayish and rubbery, which often bothers me about CC.

I'm amazed by the cat walking with them. I've heard of Savannah Cats being walked, but not what appears to be a house cat. Mine would freak if I tried that.

Sorry for the hijack. CC does work in these pics.

Film Simulation = Classic Chrome
Sharpness = +3
Shadows = +1
Highlights = +1
Grain = Off
Noise Reduction = -4
Dynamic Range = DR400
White Balance = Auto, +2 Red, -5 Blue
Color = -1

Some play with a Kodak Portra 400 film simulation.

Kodak Portra 400 Film Simulation

Film Simulation
= Classic Chrome
Sharpness = +1
Shadows = +2
Highlights = -1
Grain = Strong
Noise Reduction = -3
Dynamic Range = DR400
Color = +4
ISO = Auto (6400)
White Balance = Auto, +2R, -5B
Exposure Comp = +1 to +1 1/3

You'll notice some white balance variations due to the change in lighting during the day and also inside versus outside.
