The render settings are nothing special. You can check them out in Fig.12.

It saves the rendering with 32 bit because I work with the linear work flow to get the full light information in the image for the post work.

I did some strong post work on this image one, which mostly consisted of color correction in Photoshop. The steps that I followed can be seen in Fig.13.

First I checked the levels and corrected the white, black and middle values until I was happy with the result. The next step was to correct the contrast and the color; I did it in the green blue values to get the result I wanted. The selective colors are a strong tool in Photoshop as they allow you to adjust single colors and correct them.

Finally I added some chromatic aberration and a vignette to the final image to get the last photo-real look (Fig.14).

So, that was all for that image. Thanks you very much for reading my tutorial!

All the best
