... Whilst I like the subject matter, to me some look a little 'over cooked'

Re: Dane ...

Hi Dave; I used the settings you suggested based on your HS30 and hs50 experience...maybe the XS1 behaves different and over cooks the images? ( Please remember I am a newb and I am not sure what you meant by overcooked! Is it saturation, sharpness, contrast?...any suggestions would be appreciated...

Thanks Dave!

Re: Dane ...

Hi Dane,

The first one still has that "grayed" look to me; did you try bracketing exposure, maybe with average rather than multi metering? Maybe I'm wrong, but there's just something....

Anyway, the rest look beautiful--your colors really "pop" What settings did you change?

Re: Dane ...

Hi Lisetta.

I used Average metering.

Large, DR=200, Astia/Soft,Color=High, Sharpness=M-Hard, Highlight Tone=M-Soft,

Shadow=STD, Noise R =Low... ISO=400auto

Re: Dane ...

... I don't have an XS1 so maybe it does behave differently.

Seems to me the colours are 'over cooked'. Read as over saturated.

Can you set the colour to mid-low, low ?

That's very interesting.  On my monitor, the first one looks just as good as the rest... great color and contrast.

I will say that overall, they all look a bit over-saturated but I still like them.

Hmm. Those settings seem ...bolder... than what I've tried esp. Color, Sharpness and NR, but they seemed to work well on all of the other shots.

What do you think about that -.33 EV combination with ISO 200 when shooting the ocean? I know it's an AUTO setting, but if there's so much light that it needs EV comp, shouldn't it be on ISO 100? If you want to see if you need less EV because of all the light, why not bracket exposure? Maybe the camera is reading it better than you think.

Just a thought--

Re: Dane ...

Thanks Dave.

I will give it a try this afternoon and post the new photos set to COLOR=MID-LOW.

Re: Dane ...

Well...I think the camera did a good job on the first photo considering the full zoom was used and the guy kept pedaling and moving up and down with the waves. As for the ISO 200 chosen by the camera...I think the DR set at 200 may be at play there.

... Worth a try.

Interestingly, I read through all the other posters comments and there seem to be a unanimous amount of praise.

Main thing is to produce images you are happy with and enjoy your photography.

Re: XS1 NewSettings, New sooc pics..C/C

Thanks KJaay.

I must say that at first I thought they were a bit high on the saturation and then Dave mentioned

it and JPEG Shooter agreed.. somewhat...sooo

Maybe pulling back the saturation would soften the "color punch effect"?

I will try Dave's suggestion and post the results in a few minutes to see the difference

The first one looked dull to me too. I downloaded the first two photos and sure enough, the first one had a very compressed histogram with no dark tones and no highlights. This shot would have turned out better if it had been shot using DR 100%, but that might not have been enough. The second photo had a much better histogram, with plenty of tones ranging from bright highlights to dark shadows. The problem is, something has screwed up the images. When I use Irfanview to view downloaded photos, the main difference between what it shows and what I see from Firefox's rendition of DPR's presentation is much more detail from Irfanview, but the color is substantially the same.

This time for Dane's photos, both images are much brighter in Irfanview with the colors being gaudier, veering toward something approaching HDR excess. Also, almost all of the EXIF data has been stripped out of the first two photos, so these can't be SOOC images. Maybe a photo editor was used for viewing and then saving a copy to be uploaded, but it unknowingly applied some default changes to the images as soon as they were loaded?

.

Anyway, the rest look beautiful--your colors really "pop" What settings did you change?

Yes, very nice, except for the first.

You think they need to go from "high" to "mid-low or even low"? If anything's needed re: dialing down color (I'm not sure that it is ) aren't there a few steps worth trying in between? I don't understand putting color to "low" at all.

See my just posted "Good eye." reply to you. I don't know if Lloydy was viewing the photos from the browser or not, but I found that after downloading the first two images, the colors indeed appeared 'over cooked'. Not so much 'cooked' viewing the images online using Firefox.
