A sunset scene, progressive development
Jul 30, 2013

Every image below derives from a single pressing of the shutter button of a Fujifilm XF1 set to record RAW+JPG; the captions indicate the differences:

XF1 JPEG, straight out of the camera, no post processing, film simulation STD (Provia)

XFI, JPEG from RAW, using in-camera RAW conversion firmware, some user decisions required to process; no post-processing

XF1, JPEG from RAW, using Silkypix EX RAW conversion software, some user decisions required to process; no post-processing

XF1 Best efforts post-processing tweak, using Aperture3, of original camera-generated JPEG

XF1 Best efforts tweak, using Aperture3, of JPEG generated by in-camera RAW processor

XF1 Best efforts tweak, using Aperture3, of JPEG developed from RAW with Silkypix EX

Judgement calls were required in both RAW conversion development processes, and in all three Aperture tweak processes, but all individual judgements were made with an eye to recreate the scene as accurately as possible to conform the image to the appearance to the photographer's eye when the scene was shot, never intentionally to jazz the image to make it an eye popper.  No individual color alterations were intentionally applied in any of the processes, except as to fine-tuning of overall color temperature.  I was, therefore, surprised at how the rendition of the color of the clouds and of the reflections on the water varies so radically among the different versions.
