Thanks to all.

Full disclosure requires that I admit this is the result of miserable stupidity on my part. New K3 for Christmas. Took some shots one day and all was fine. Spent the next few days fiddling around with settings (lots of menus to learn). Took it out Friday, shot over 200 frames. When I them on the computer, found that, among other problems, every single frame was under exposed by at least two, mostly three stops. Arghhh! I just couldnít get the color to look right (probably another setting Iíd messed with), so Ö B&W it is. (And yes, Iíve done a reset; everything is OK now.)
