My family and I are headed to Myrtle Beach the first of the month for a little vacation. :-)

It'll be my first time in Myrtle Beach. I think our hotel is a few miles away from Broadway on the Beach? Looked like an interesting area.

You should definitely check out Bodo's while you're there! It's sort of a dive place, not down on the beach, it's near where the zipline is by the Ripley's Museum. Very fair prices for what you get and the food is awesome. Best Wiener Schnitzel I've ever had, including the one's I had in Germany ;)

Shooting 18/35 on my Xp1. Mostly 35mm @ f2 outside in good light, shutter speeds high 1/1700 sec etc. Always preferred the Xp1 styling over all the mirrorless cameras out there.

My first night shot with the fuji.. Taken in the mountains of New Mexico. I'm not great with light painting; My flashlight was WAY too bright even on the lowest setting.

Question: When I import some x100s raw files into Nik Silver effects pro, the blue sky often seems pixelated, almost as if its been over saturated. I rarely see this issue with my Canon 6D, and only when I accidentally over saturate the blue channel and convert to black and white. I can post sample images later, but I thought I'd ask anyway. So, has anyone had this issue?
Thanks

This happens with my X-T1 in Bridge, too.

@Oregun: Thanks for posting the original! The blur still looks a bit weird to me but I guess it happens sometimes; I don't take many long-exposure waterfalls myself so it's probably just me.

However, I prefer the original to your edit. You tried to balance out the highlights and shadows a bit, but that's mostly a losing proposition in a scene like this with a huge contrast range. The specular highlights on the rocks are basically sunlight directly reflected into the lens, so they should remain blown-out. Since there's no information there but pure white, the recovery you've applied turns them to even gray, which looks strange (also, you've increased chromatic aberration somehow, hot sure how that happened - see the purple fringing at bottom right). Did you use some kind of HDR tool?

Furthermore, on the waterfall itself and the water streams, it looks like you desaturated and brought back the highlights too. IMO if you wanted to get rid of the blueish hue, white balance was the way to go (it doesn't look like you touched global white balance between the original and the edit). Again, pulling back the highlights was a bit excessive. Since the white areas in sunlight are also basically reflections of the sun (I'm thinking of that stream on the right side), you kind of expect the white point of the image to be there.

I'm not at home so I can't do an edit myself, but here's how I would have proceeded:
- adjust WB to add a bit of warmth/magenta to taste
- decrease global exposure by maybe one stop (?)
- I'd have let the shadows go deep but it's personal taste; brighten them if it's your preference
- brighten up the waterfall in the background a bit
- pull down the highlights in the middle of the image to recover the leaves, BUT make sure that the specular highlights remain such

It's not always easy to recover detail in bright areas without moving the white point but I feel that's what this picture needed.

Anyway, just my long-winded 2c :).

@armis

I think what you are seeing is due to the image being out of focus at the back. If you look at the rocks and the bushes at the waterfall its all out of focus. This could be due to the fact f/5.6 was used and assuming focus point was the rocks in the foreground. This has not yielded enough dof to get the falls in focus.The combination of the long exposure and the out of focus has gave the waterfall the "fake" feeling.

@Oregon - Im not knocking your pic, I just think that is what armis is seeing. I like the shot but would have liked more dof personally

Thanms for the input. I always like the crictic from you guys. Make me push my self more to be better. @xpfloyd. Your right the water blur is out of focus since this in only f5.6. I wishi did change it to F8-F11. But when i you have your little boy (4yrs old)taking picfures with me. I have to take the shot quickly cause its verry steep Downhill. 12 inches and you might fall down in 30-40 ft.

My first post with my new X-T1 and the 35/1.4. The camera happened to be on the counter within reach when my daughter decided she wanted to attach herself to my foot. I didn't even check the settings since I didn't want that smile to disappear (it was 6:30AM).

The shot is highly compressed here but I swear it was nice at the time. :)

IQ doesn't matter with a shot like that, as long as you capture the moment. Along those lines, some of my favorite photos of my kids were with my iphone :)
