Fractal rendition of [link]
Based on my first ever DD, but as originally implied, I didn't like the "hazy" effect in the background. This was due to the unattractive blue cast from the sky bleeding into the mountains behind the llama.
Didn't think much of it when I started fractalizing the original, but the boosted colour saturation made this blue cast even more unappealing. So I decided to knock out the blue altogether from the mountains while retaining the blue from the sky.
In the process, I ended up with what I perceive to be a dynamically contrasted image. Many have used a similar technique for instance when masking out a vibrantly coloured flower against a grayscale background, but what I am proposing is more of a three-tiered approach.
Instead of making a foreground object like a coloured flower pop out against a gray background, why not introduce a middle-ground grayscale element separating a fully saturated foreground like the llama here and somewhat muted coloured background like the sky above the mountains?
For all I know, this effect has been implemented before; if not, I would like to claim it as the somadjinn effect
