Re: Uncropped version of posted Grand Canyon image

Your ISO should be higher and your f stop should not be f 2.You should have your f stop around f 11

I agree, that a higher f-stop should have been used. f/8 would have been good and would have added some additional sharpness to the image. i assume your suggestion to use a higher ISO is to assure the shutter speed will be high enough to avoid any motion blur. In that I agree, the shutter speed should probably be at least 1/60 or higher.

The composition will look better if you cut a bit from the left - so that the well lit rock and the foot are out. Then shift the "exposure" slider a bit to the left and then add a small amount of contrast and saturation - whatever software you might use

Next time you should use ISO 1000 and f 5,6 or 8.

Are you serious ?

We can not tell anything about xtrans by judging this image.  The air is not clear , it is evening light and we do not know the settings or PP used.  Detail rendering is usually a PP issue with X trans.... if there are any issues. I have not seen any compared to my Canon cameras.

What exactly is it in the image that is "very unnatural detail rendering"?   Please elaborate.

You are right, it is not a problem of X-Trans, but of rendering X-Trans data. No Bayer Sensor makes those water color like rendering. I've seen these problems with landscapes, so brown to green to grey gradients and trees in distance, where all renderings (like Lightroom, ACR, Capture one) except the Fuji jpgs and DCRAW struggle with details. This image above is one more example.

I've used X-Pro 1 for a year and X-E2 for half a year now. I love rendering of portraits and architecture, but landscape isn't its strength I think.
