If, or when I am using the Leica X-E, I would like to keep it simple by only making jpeg images using the Leica standard colors. I did that with the above, but I then cropped and used the auto tone in LR. I picked the above scenes to photograph for the variety in conditions and colors. Using the auto tone button in LR only made some very subtle adjustments to exposures, shadows, etc. The jpeg files are also quite malleable in LR if I wish to punch them up a little differently in either color or B&W as shown below. Working with only jpeg files should give me no problems whatsoever.
The color jpegs also make nice straight-forward B&W landscapes using LR to convert them using one click with my preset.
