'Reflecting on the Calm, Warm Water'

 

Yesterday, while enjoying the day at Club Med in Grace Bay, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, I took this photo in the harsh, mid-day light.

 

Fuji X-Pro 1

XF 14mm f/2.8R

I'm not totally sold on Fuji as a landscape camera, but it rocks for seascapes.

Can I ask why you believe it rocks for seascapes but not landscapes? Just curious as the two types overlap quite heavily, I've not had a chance to shoot any seascapes with my kit yet, looking forward to it though!

Sure - it's been said to death, and I don't want to annoy anyone, but briefly, I'm one of the people who does have issues with certain landscape shots in RAW (probably exacerbated due to where I live, where there is a lot of fine, green grasses/foliage, which is kind of a worse-case scenario). It's a bizarre issue though, as it's there on a percentage of shots, and not really a bother on others.

 

I also live near the sea, and don't have any problems at all with seascape shots, as this type of pattern/texture/colour isn't encountered much. Similarly, I find it's a great street/people camera.

 

These days, I tend to use my X-T1 for those applications, and leave verdant landscapes to my E-M1. That said, I'm liking Capture One more and more, which seems to play nicer, and I may move back full time to the Fuji at some point.

Fair enough, I wondered whether it was linked to the grass/foliage issues from RAW. C1 is meant to be very good at eliminating this issue and LR has come on a long way since. Perhaps you should give it a go this autumn and see whether its's worth the shift?

 

I use raw sharpening presets for the XT1 and then adjust masking to eliminate excessive sharpening to sky dtc. Seems to work okay but certainly Lightroom could step up its game, when it comes to Xtrans.
