52 Cameras: Camera 74 part 2 — Fujifilm FinePix J10

Quite a trip: La Mesilla to Santa Fe to Albuquerque to Bloomfield to Colorado Springs and then the whole thing in reverse.

I was surprised how much I like this camera. This is the first Fuji/Fujica/Fujifilm camera I’ve shot with and it’s not bad at all. I had to order a capacitor for the flash and I hope that’s all it will take to fix it.

I played in Photoshop a bit for the image below. I lightened the shadows, darkened the highlights, and boosted the midtone contrast. It looks like an HDR image. The colors are more like what my eyes saw in the early morning light but it lost some detail. I’m not sure if I like it or not — maybe a little heavy-handed.
