Thank, Ted, for your comments.  You make some good points.  I especially
needed help in thinking about the sunset photo
<>.  We get
some great ones in Iowa so perphaps the next time out I will be able to
better capture one.

On my PAW 4 you said the following:

>centre of the picture isn't strong enough to hold the eye..

I wonder if a polarizing filter would be useful in this situation?   
Also, the way you broke down the possible ways to make it better helps
me look back on this photo (which I still like :) as well as ahead.
