Yes, that's one reason I hesitated to put them up as jpegs since I 
haven't processed the RAW.  Most of them were made with one tungsten 
light hanging from the ceiling but some were made before or after the 
light was turned on and only have firelight.  When I process the Raw 
files I can correct all of that.

Most of them are auto-focus, but I was using some Leica R lenses that 
I had to focus myself.  Not easy in this light with the Canon 
viewfinder.  Now I have the Canon split-focus screen, but I didn't 
then.  I like the Canon focus selection with the 1DMII but you don't 
get that with the 10D and some of these were made with that 
camera.  None of these have been sharpened beyond what the camera 
automatically does for the jpeg previews. I just wanted to get them 
up while everybody might be thinking about what has happened there.
