Hi Christina,

This is an update of my posting about your excellent gallery onhttp://www.photo-forums.com/WebX?7@22.gYonb3LEE6U.0@.ee98d0a/255.

I'm blown away by this one ("Retired" 32981959.rustedships2) I just looks impossible. The whites on the boats are pure white yet the sky is very cloudy, and the range of colors within the photo is incredible. How did you you do it? Was there just a hole in the clouds allowing bright illumination of the boats?
Do you shoot in RAW?
How much post processing do you do .. i.e. this photo?

Do you have your D70 repaired? I hope you have been compensated in someway by the klutzes who messed up your shutter.

I notice that you always (or nearly always) shoot with -2/3 ev or -1/3 compensation (occasionally -1/2 ev). I had heard that some D70s have a tendency to overexpose, but mine and many others apparently always underexpose. I need +0.3 ev under the best of conditions and + 0.7 ev if it's cloudy or I'm in shade such as Muir Woods (Redwoods). So, my question is: Is your D70 "normal" and you have discovered a good reason to use -2/3 ev compensation and you correct it in something like Photoshop .. OR .. is there just one whole f stop difference in the metering calibration of your D70 and mine?

I make DVDs with my photos .. with music, panning, zooming, fades, dissolves, titles, captions, etc. All just for myself and family. We loved Victoria on our recent trip there and I shot enough pictures to make a 25 minute DVD. If you'd like to see it, I'd be delighted to send you one. I'll be traveling from June 26 for about 10 days, but will send it when I return, if you'll email an address ... work, or whereever.
