Thanks, George.

I didn't mention it before, but I had been shooting my humble Canon 50/1.2 
LTM in a dark alehouse while having lunch with a friend (he has a 
Noct).  We went outside, and I saw the scene take shape across the street. 
So I stopped down to f/8 and shot.  I was using a 1950s superspeed lens in 
bright daylight, and I had to crop the hell out of the frame down to about 
1:2 (50% onscreen). All "wrong."  But it turned out all right, and it 
prints nicely at letter size.
