    A shot I took on the way home that I messed up -- then did something with.

    I did it on the X100 and accidently left the color cranked in Velvia mode ending up with an incredibly lurid interpretation. I decided to run it through the Topaz Adjust plug-in which I almost never use -- after de-energizing it a bit in Lightroom first -- and got this from it. It's a case of making lemonade out of lemons, lol.

    Nice to see TA applied to tone DOWN an image - good work.

    Polished up pretty well. SOME day, Fuji may crack the algorithm that would make the 'Velvia' preset in these cameras worthy of the name. It will run away with itself pretty quickly, though I do find on really gray days, it can be just the thing. That the scene has to be THAT gray for it to be pleasing says something, ya think ?

    Absolutely positively - looks like a tiny HDR effect and whatever it was you did, it worked really well.
