I mean, how DO you process your photos? #2

I came up with this soft, more on a cool side gimp processing that I really like so I thought I would share. This is just a simple way to cool down your photo a bit. I named the processing Waves because it kinda reminds me of the salty sea and underwater, kinda. So yeah. Again, this might need a bit of tweaking on your part. This is just for this image and its exposure values/light. Oh, and the tool I used is curves. I promise to post more of this tutorials. Not just the simple ones.

    I love how simple changes can make a huge difference in a photo!! For me, curves are one of the most powerful tools on photoshop/gimp.. I edit my pictures mainly on lightroom, but I´m thinking of going back to photoshop cause I miss curves so much LOOL And levels as well.. <333

    Thank you Ines. Your processing is simple but effective. The picture rendered by your camera looks nice too. After a little talk with you, I downloaded GIMP again and tried it out. As a Photoshop user I have to say that many things you can do with Photoshop, you can do with GIMP too. I just dont know if there is a addon that delivers a Exclusion blend mode, this is very nice to have when aiming a vintage look.
