Conditions were not ideal as it was slightly raining and heavily overcast. Stills were signficantly flat in contrast, lacked depth, as well as desaturated in colors.
To achieve the visualization I had in mind. I raised the overall exposure then in the RGB tone curve crushed the blacks slightly, lowered the shadows, and lifted the highlights. Within the Basic panel I lowered the contrast slightly, raised highlights/whites, and dropped blacks. I prefer less contrast in order to emulate the natural atmospheric representation. To achieve this I typically lower my clarity slightly.
