Odd lack of dynamic range
In reply to BrianKraft, Mar 4, 2013

Brian - great to see the X100S in use

Quick question RE exposure/PP

All of the images posted are lacking true blacks, i.e. their dynamic range does not extend to the black end of the levels histogram.

Was this deliberate?

Look at the histogram for this image

The image has no blacks - probably a stop of dynamic range is missing

If I slide the black level up in CS6, you can already see how much better the image looks

If this was deliberate, then fair call - it's a look

If not, then you may want to calibrate your monitor to ensure you're using the dynamic range available in each image.

And you may want to look at your exposures in camera to ensure you're making the most of the dynamic range available.
