Eterna Lakeside for Boosted Blues & Greens

A stylised film simulation recipe for Fujifilm X-Trans IV cameras

The Eterna Cinema film simulation produces warm low contrast images by default, but with some increases to the tone curve and adjustments to the colour balance, you can achieve some interesting and striking results.

In this recipe, which I called Eterna Lakeside, the adjustments have a particular effect that brings out the blues in an image, enhancing the sky, and relections on water.
