Don't like Fuji jpegs - am I doing something wrong?
8 months ago

I know this is probably heresy and I will be burnt at the stake but I just can't get in to Fuji jpegs and am able to get better results out of the RAW files.

That said having seen other peoples' examples I think I may be doing something wrong or have a setting askew.

I have tried Velvia, Astia and Pro Neg S & H and none of them do it for me - I find the renditions flat and uninspiring.

As an example the shot below is SOOC:

And the RAW file PP'd in LR and PS CC:

Any suggestions on settings etc?
