Hi rattymouse, Your shots have a really nice, natural color. What setting are you using ? natural mode ?

any other PP ? I found that my DP2m has some very different color interpretation.

Interesting and very practical outfit for the youngling

Your samples look much better here than on dpreview. Do you have to upload on dpreview server and they cut the quality? Never posted there pictures.

Thanks for the comments. I have bounced back and forth between neutral and standard, mostly using standard in this set. No real other PP to speak of, perhaps a bit of clarity added in Lightroom. No sharpening at all.

Thanks. I always shoot neutral color so far but sometimes it comes out too flat. I will experiment with standard mode next time. Feveon sensor does have a very distinctive color, a very smooth, filmmic feel.

rattymouse,
what iso did you use for the top photo on this page that looks like an indoor shot? I was thinking that something like this would not be possible.

That's an ISO200 shot. While the statue is indoors, it is well exposed to the outside light as the doors right in front of the statue are all open. If I remember right, I took this shot while actually standing outside.

it's common in places below sea level/with a high water table (e.g. new orleans).

Interesting! I didn't know that. This was the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery Santiago de Cuba. Did not seem below sea level but the city is situated in a bay surrounded by mountains. And there are the hurricanes, of course.
