Forest Stream

Reading, Pennsylvania is our county seat and about 20-minutes away from us. It is hardly a "Big City", but it has several minor-league sports teams, a performing arts center that gets at least B-list acts and an interesting little art museum. My wife and I went to the art museum recently on a mid-week "date" and I brought my little Fuji X-100 camera with me. They didn't allow pictures in the traveling exhibit that we were there to see (Andy Warhol) but they do allow non-flash photography in their permanent exhibit halls.

 

Unfortunately, this was taken shortly after I upgraded my X-100 firmware. One of the minor annoyances with the X-100 is that after a firmware upgrade they reset all options to factory-default, including the frame-counter. One of the personal settings that I forgot to re-define was for RAW, so the original of this was an OOC JPG. As soon as I started working at 100% I was immediately reminded why I prefer to shoot RAW. Processed through Lightroom, NIK Dfine 2.0 and NIK Viveza 2.

 

Fujifilm X-100; ISO-1250(auto); f2; 1/60-sec; -1ev
