Lovely, Peter, lovely. What film simulation mode - Velvia? Such reds - only S5Pro can do that. Long time ....

Thanks guys for popping by and giving comments.
Torgny, it's been a long time. Nice to see that you are still so glued to photography, especially the floral one. The mode I used is Simulation 1b, a mode that provides vibrant reproduction of natural colors.

Wow very nice. Is "film simulation mode" something that is built into you camera?

In S5 Pro, there are 5 film simulation modes respectively -
1. F2 that provides vibrant reproduction of natural colors and is ideal for landscape and nature photography.
2. F1c that increases sharpness in comparison to the F1 mode. This mode is ideal for fashion shooting.
3. F1b that reproduces skin tones with smooth transition and natural colors in vibrant manners. This mode is ideal for daylight portrait.
4. F1a that enhances saturation as compared to F1 mode.
5. F1 that suppresses flaring in flash highlights when the flash is used and also stresses smooth tonal transitions in the reproduction of skin tones. The mode is ideal for studio portrait work where the aim is professional-standard negatives.
6. Standard that is ideal for a wide range of subjects, including portraits and scenery.
