Following dabateman post evoking direct SOOC in-camera goldie rendering I pust here some test shots using a TIFFEN47 filter + cheap FL-D filter
Here WB was done in-camera and what you see is sidecar JPG along to RAW file.

Those look great. Much better than the lee pack plus GBR3 2mm, I was trying.

The CWB is really important here because it hugely shifts the global warmth of the picture. Another SOOC image looks like this with a warmer reference used as neutral for WB :

Sometimes I even use the blue sky as reference for WB (like in the previous example). It turns out really "goldie" on the vegetation and I can then adjust and separate the tones in post if needed. I gonna dig to find out which filters I bought.

Is it possible to get that gold vegetation without making everything look like it has a gold cast to it? Even the sky looks like it’s in King Midas-vision.

Yes of course, it really relies on the CWB done in-camera but you can adjust it when developping the RAW file.
What about this one ? The sky is blue enough and the elements do differenciate from the vegetation.

Yes! Like that.

(Now I have that Goldfinger Bond movie theme song stuck in my head. Only myself to blame.)
