I tried the 3 picture profiles yesterday and didn't get the results I was expecting. It was ten minutes of partly cloudy while I shot these sunflowers. I'm sure that had something to do with it. For my nature and landscape daytime / sunrise / sunset photography, I shoot with the Sony vivid creative style, saturation and contrast set to +3 and sharpness set to 0. I was expecting Velvia's picture profile to look similar, but the yellows and greens look much too dull. The sky is pretty close to my custom vivid creative profile but I was hoping for something closer to what I got out of Velvia Modified (me tinkering with the settings and boosting the saturation to max).
My Ektar and Vektro look dull. Granted, my eyes may be accustomed to my saturated colors, but then I went to the website that showed the red headed woman holding the color map in front of the mountains for each profile. I don't think I achieved those results. I really want to learn I spent the better part of the day researching all the components of the picture profile to see if I could have an aha moment but no such luck.
Shot with the Sony RX10 mark IV.
These were the modified setting I used for Velvia Modified. I think the greens could be a little brighter but if they stay this hue, I can live with it.
