Nice bright rape seed field with a nice seascape behind. The one problem I have here is,like your earlier upload 'wheal coates', the horizon positioning could, I feel improve this shot quite a lot.

Applying the 'Rule of Thirds' would give you two choices here I prefer to see less rape and more sky so a crop off the foreground area to leave the horizon approximately 1/3 the way up is what I have done in my mod.

I trust you used a tripod given your low shutter speed. Personally to get the best out of my lens I may well have used f11 of even f8 rather than the f16 you employed here.

I hope you see the advantage and approve of it.

What a beautiful Image! I have done you a mod. Did a different crop, making it squarer and taking away the border and a little off the sky. I removed a bit of saturation,as I feel there is just a bit too much, but gave a touch more contrast, which I think gives more depth. Lovely captureGrin

haha yes the old fuji s2 saturation strikes again Wink I guess when they brought this old beast out they were going for velvia or something...I kind of like it though Smile

Just as a matter of interest Darren, does that camera have a 'velvia' setting on it?

I've got a S5700 which has one and whilst you wouldn't leave it turned on all of the time, there have been occasions when I've been shooting flowers, for example, that it's been really useful.

As for your shot, I think that I'd simply slightly de-saturate the blue channel only and leave the rest alone.

Hi there, it doesn't have a velvia setting, it has a "STD" "ORG" and something else, however I leave all settings as the standard and do everything in post - the sensor still seems very "colourful" though, and usually I leave them well enough alone, save for a bit of channel mixing...

Thanks Darren.

I've heard other people talk about Fuji's 'colourful sensors,' so it might be a genetic Fuji thing.

This shot needs a subject. The general vista is impressive but the rape field is very - yellow. The classic would be girl in red dress on bottom left third.

bren as you said velvia is genetic from fuji. on photoscape there is film filter velvia, and if i apply my image with that filter, it looks like there is nothing different result. my image looks like the same as before. (my camera fuji s2950).
