G'Mornin' Dougl!

Another first class shot, Doug! Composition, detail and, of course, 
focus, are spot on!

However, on my monitor it seems a little light...  without much 
saturation.  Are you using the camera's exposure setting?  I'm 
finding that the DMR works much better if developed 1/2 stop 
under.  So, if I'm shooting ISO 1600 I might use ISO 800 with -1.5 EV 
compensation, then compensate 1 EV, leaving me with my effective ISO 
and still 1/2 stop underexposure. Seems to work well!

Keep up the good work!
