My reference is X10 since I don't own an HS50, but would it be possible for you to set raw + jpeg, M, ISO 100 and DR 400? ISO 100 would help, I think. Also, try dropping exposure down by a 1/3 or even 2/3 factor for landscapes. It reduces the highlight clipping on reflective surfaces of leaves, etc. Here's a sample of those settings (X10)

Yes, that's possible, all of these shots had those settings, except for the ISO. Does ISO400 really screw things up that much? I usually shoot at -0.3ev (it was also necessary on most Olympus DSLRs). My processing in LR seems to find that clipping isn't generally a serious issue with the HS50 though, and all recovery sliders were mostly well within the boundaries when adjusted.

I think it looks like there's just too much detail lost with the high ISO noise here. I should be used to that, as again, all the Olympus cameras suffered with ISO noise above 400, and it was general practice to fix them to 100.
