Tina, for this one I might ideally like the line of the canoe from bottom
right corner into the frame. So less image on the right and a little more
below, maybe? I think that it needs to be straightened too. I bet you have a
bunch of alternate frames?
I don't see anything in that one which might have been out of gamut. I think
that it is something in your process. For me, when I make web versions, I do
all editing and resizing/resampling then change to 8 bit before saving as a
jpg. Last step is then convert to sRGB colour space. I haven't observed any
colour loss by that sequence in anything I have shot so far. This one looks
too as though you could extract more highlight information from the water
reflections in the Raw conversion. Also I am not convinced that you should
routinely have that -.3EV dialed in. I think that you are needlessly
discarding too much of the potential range of the original linear capture by
doing that, before all of the converting and manipulation in and out of
camera starts. Maybe that's a separate discussion. I've not used my M8
anything like as much as you have yours, of course.

My amateur 1.88 cents worth (woohoo, go the Aussie dollar vs USD)

I'm still working on India photos.  This one has a nice golden glow 
as a Adobe RGB tif but it's not as obvious in the sRGB jpeg:

M8 photo. Comments and criticisms greatly appreciated.
