If you're going to try to take multiple shots and align them, I'd suggest bracketing across say +/- 2EV and using picturenaut to create an HDR. It has auto alignment and ghost removal which produces amazing accuracy. This one isn't the best example, but I took it hand-held while walking around the markets yesterday - the stall was in very bright light at the bottom and heavily shaded at the top, the three images would not have aligned easily since it was handheld:

Mick that sounds way too easy. I love it, great idea.
Thanks, your pic looks great.

Cheers Joe; the only complex bit is the "tone mapping" part of picturenaut - but it doesn't take too long to get the hang of it.

Saly-
Very nice pictures... you're pushing the camera to its limits, I think- into DSLR territory. I was hoping to see a picture of Gene Autry's famous guitar- a Martin D-45, made for him in 1933. It was the first Martin Dreadnaught guitar built in this ultra-fancy trim level, and was used in all his movies and recordings. Here's a picture of a limited run (66) of replica's made by Martin in 1994... you can see what they're going for nowadays! http://www.gruhn.com/features/gene%20autry/aa6871.html
It now resides in the Autry Western Heritage Museum in Los Angeles... is that the same place you were??

Wes, yes this indeed is the place and I'm sorry to say I didn't capture the Martin....if I had my family with me, they surely would have noticed, but I'm not the musician in my family.... I do plan to go back sometime soon to try the techniques suggested in these posts, so I will make sure to look for it.

Thanks for the tips Ozzie and Martin. Something I'll have to try
Thanks Joe, I kind of like the dark, also. I think colors look richer against shadows. If lightened too much, images can get "flat" looking.
