FujiFilm HS-10 - Landscape

Set out specifically this morning to take some landscape shots. I don't consider myself a landscape photographer, but it was fun playing around.

With the FujiFilm HS-10, I was shooting Raw and Jpeg.

The images below are edits from the Jpegs and then followed by an edit from the Raw file

My settings, for the Jpeg's, are still all 'maxed out' for colour, tone and sharpness, so the colours are vivid. I found I really had to tone down the Blues/Cyans though as they were way over saturated.

Mostly, editing consisted of a pass through DxO Optics Pro with DxO Lighting set to 40%, for the Jpeg files, and the Raw files were edited in Adobe Camera Raw. Then they had levels adjustment in Photoshop and were sharpened.


Note : Clicking on any image will display a larger size of that image

Each of the sets, is a Jpeg edit followed by a Raw edit, just to give an idea of the differences.




  1. Wow! Those are gorgeous, Dave. Beautiful FUJI colors - nice details and eye-pleasing scenes.


  2. Jada, Hi.

    Many thanks for the comment. I'll try and get the Raw edits finished so I can put up comparisons.


  3. I just got an HS10 and I really appreciate your tips and all the great images on this site. If you decide to post some more on this series I'd be curious to see what the JPGs look like before any processing.

  4. Kevin, Hi.

    Thank you. I will put up something in the next couple of days which shows some process steps using some of these images. That will include original through to edit.


  5. Lord, what a beautiful part of the world you picked to live in! I can't get over those hills, or whatever they're called, rising straight out of the ground.

  6. Timbo, Hi.

    There is an enormous amount of coastal flat area around here with just a few things like this scattered about. As you get further from the coast the mountains start and they run all the way to the Burmese border.

    I was pleased I found this area as it is the 'backside' of what you see from the main highway. Took me a while to figure out how to get in there. Google Earth sure helps.
