I think the drum scan gave me more dynamic range and it certainly gave me
less dust.  I wanted to try WCi's Tango scan while it was on sale and the
depth of detail and dynamic range in this photo was sufficient that it would
show off the best side of the scan.  I'll look at it in more detail in the
next week or so.
