    Terrific photos. I lived in Utah for several years back in the ’90s, and coming from Florida the geography and topography were stunning to me. If Utah doesn’t inspire you to grab a camera and get out, then find a new hobby.

    You certainly make that single lens camera work for you. Thanks for sharing.

    These are a very nice set of photos. I am always amazed at those who can use the 23mm focal length for such a wide variety of subjects. Nicely done.

    Really nice. What did you do in post? And what profile did you use?

    Thanks for the engaging shots of the landscape, the people, and the small towns. Your composition makes the emptiness engaging. The shots remind me fondly of two years I lived in northern Utah. Thanks for the real-world impressions of the X100V.

    Thanks for sharing the tale of your one day road trip, Ben. I especially love that photo of the super tiny BBQ House.

    The town of Eureka, Utah bears no resemblance to the town in the SyFy television show. 😁

    I’ve spent a lot of time in red rock Utah. You give an amazing glimpse into another side. Rural street photography at its best.

    Hi Ben!
    I’m new to the Fujifilm system and just picked up an X100V. Looking around online, I came across this article and I was floored by the colours – in particular, the wide shot of the gas station and the one of “Hunsaker’s Lazy H Jerky”.

    Did you shoot those as RAW and edit after or as JPEG and those are the files SOOC? If those are the JPEGS, what settings or recipe do you use? I love the natural looking colours without looking like a digital photo too too much.

    Any help or direction is greatly appreciated. Thank you,
