I think I'm starting to get the hang of editing the D2X raw files using Capture NX2. It is quite different from the "modern" D700 which I previously owned, and being one of the oldest Nikon DSLR cameras it does not have "picture control" support. This actually makes things quite simple as there are basically 2 colour modes to choose from - Mode I or Mode III In this picture I was using Mode III which Nikon suggest is best for landscapes as colours are enhanced compared with the Mode I which is more aimed at portraits. Interestingly Mode II is greyed out on the menu when the sRGB colour space is selected but is avaliable when Adobe RGB colours space is selected. I'm quite liking using the 28mm f/3.5 AI lens with the D2X as this gives a 42mm equivalent field of view. DSC_2398 War Memorial, Vivary Park, Taunton - 1/160 @ f/3.8 (iso100)
