Thank you Sir! I don't have great landscape sites as you do, so I must look at the smaller things.

I like your shot also!

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'm happy with it and it enlarged pretty well too. I had that done straight out of the camera so the blue of the sky was almost non existent.

Hey, to take that much contrast variance and not wash out is quite an accomplishment.

Well it is a P&S so unfortunately it's all down to the camera. All I did was pay for the plane tickets.

It sure left you with a great last image though. It never did recover after this shot? Bummer!
