    A nice shot and good feedback I think the minor negatives are all a result of post processing, and as mentoined as you sot raw you can try it again

    Normally a shot into the sky wild require a +1 exposure compensation, and the exif doent show that ( nor would it when shot in M mode) but if you metered for the centre if the meter, the shot would be underexposed. I am assuming this is what occurred, and you were forced to then light shadows in post processing. This is highly likely to make noise very visible, especially in dark areas. Try instead to increase exposure, and keep an eye on the blown highlights

    Ive uploaded a mod with noise reduction and a crop, though the changes I can make are limited by working on a JPEG file

    A good effort.

  • the Top of Horseshoe Falls

    Looks like you brought the wrong camera, Its very underexosed with a dynamic range well outside its capabilities. Increasing expose even a small amount produces unaceptably high noise levels..The weather certainly wasnt on your side ither

  • Snacking!

    Nice shot Paul, good detail. Ive loaded a mod also.

    Having has both the Canon 85mm and the Fuji 56 mm I can attest to the fact that the Canon is superior in a full frame camera. Not on an APSC.

    Many people prefer JPEG to RAW with Fuji, as there is not good RAW processor available doe to the non-bayer pattern filter. There are raw converters, but they dont get the very best out of the raw file.

    Autofocus, to quote too reputable review sources, is closing in on the performance of mirroreless camera from Sony, etc from 5 years ago.

    Whats great is the film emulation Fuji has, which are gorgeous..Why go to the XT-10 which is identical to the one you have, the XM1. It certainly one the handles better, and has a viewfinder, but the same sensor, CPU, prosessing?

  • My Halloween Tree

    Ive uploaded a variation on this based on the original

    The issue I think you have is that you are using a small aperture to obtain a long exposure in relatively bright light.
    A better approach is to use a wide, shallow dof aperture to get what you want, and to do this, you need some sort of stopper filter. This redcuces the light so you can use a smaller aperture and still get a long exposure.

    Have I understood what you want correctly? If not, let us know

  • Moira, I just LOVE the Dublin series, - as a part Irish person you will understand how your journey, so well documented in this series really resonates with a person born and raised there, as I am.


  • Beautiful set of landscapes, well done.

  • I like your new PF pic Vic.
