There you go, Graham, on my widescreen monitor that one fills the screen 
from side to side. I would think that with the orange
filter, it's unsurprising that you would lose a tiny bit of detail at the 
tonal extremes? Hardly objectionable when you reap the
benefit of the cloud effects etc, of course.
I checked my post box today and couldn't find any 1 metre wide enlargements 
sent to me as part of the bulk LUG mail;-) I'd like to
see you go back to this spot with a 28 or 24. Always a pleasure to look at 
your stuff.

Graham, I can mentally see this one a metre wide in a local tourism centre 
or VIP's office. There is so much detail that it's hard
to make out on screen. Can you post it bigger? Or just mail a large print to 
every LUG member!

The only extra detail visible from a larger shot are the highlight burn outs 
and shadow block ups :-)
