Greg-

You are so correct. Fill flash can make a really measurable image quality difference.

Thanks everybody for the kind words. Kittykat I went to the Hill towns of Darjeeling and Gangtok. As I posted before, you can see more of the pics of those places at http://www.flickr.com/photos/3735086...7623511991713/

Hi,

Could you give some details about the processing that you did in the fourth picture of your first posting? I see that the background (sky/haze) shows halos around the sharp edges of the various roofs.

Regards,
Mark

hi Mark, thats the result of some lazy post processing, i did Adjustments-> shadows and highlights, i used too aggressive values for shadows, should have used lower values.

Great shots indeed (particularly your favorite one. I extracted one sentence from your post because I totally subscribe to it. I go through the same exact exercise every time I get a new camera. Taking many shots of the same subject in the same conditions using different settings is the best way for one to understand the camera and select the settings that produce the best results to one's liking.
