Centre Court, with Astia for Summer Greens

Fujifilm recipe for X-Trans IV cameras using the Astia Soft simulation

Inspired by a trip to Wimbledon to watch the tennis championships, I wanted to try some new recipes that would capture the manicured grass and pretty floral displays. I chose Astia for this recipe, looking to accurately capture colour and tone, but with a Fujifilm feel.
