No beach mode?

I suspect you twiddled your way into some trouble from the looks of the EXIFs in your darker samples. Honestly, there's a time for that kind of experimentation (when no one is requiring a quick outcome from you and your camera) and a time for just having fun and getting good, predictable results from an auto or scene mode. Most current cameras can handle back lighting with built-in dynamic range expansion in auto or scene modes. Doesn't your XE-1 have a beach mode in the scene modes? It's hard to believe Fujifilm wouldn't have engineered some way for simplicity at the beach, when fun is the main factor.
