XF1: Fuji colors, nature colors, EXR

I like Fuji colors.  I like nature's colors.  Right next door are some pine trees that have new growth, a vibrant green against the deep green older growth.  So I used my XF1 to try to capture that.  I used mode A, size M, DR400, -1/3EVF.  I also wanted to see if I used Auto EXR and let the camera do the work.

The A mode worked well.  I imported it in Capture One, did some minor PP (mostly vignetting and some levels) and am pleased with the result.  The Auto EXR was, in my opinion, unusable.  I think the Auto EXR tried too much to equalize all the levels in camera, resulting in a (in my opinion) blown out image.  Here they are:

A mode, with minor PP
