Hi Philippe,

Thanks for looking--I just pulled it up in Lightroom to see the edits  
I did and see the following in HISTORY:

- image shot at f5.6, 1/160 sec. at ISO 100 and 14mm (RAW, of course)
- imported into Lightroom and converted to DNG
- crop
- auto tone

That's it. In other words, the only manipulation I made to that  
particular image is to crop it and click on the AUTO button in  
Lightroom's tone panel. I am afraid that is not very helpful...
