Marvelous shots, very brilliant colour.

I have a 12" X 18" print of one of Tom's images, shot with the 6MP DS, it is superb. Can't wait to find a 12X18 frame and mat so I can get it on the wall. Nothing wrong with 6MP for most of us.

Will those are all tremendous. You really have mastered HDR. The Trading Post shot is my favorite with Colors a very close second. Thanks for posting them.

Wow (as usual). 6 mp is plenty to produce some really outstanding pictures - you've been providing plenty of examples. I really love Colors, and it isn't the type of picture I normally would be drawn to. Well done!

Have you ever tried to convert to 3 different jpgs from the same raw to make a HDR? How many steps over- and underexposed? Lessons learned? I want to use my Christmas holiday to learn this!

Hog Rider, you have convinced me that I do not need to upgrade to the K10D! Instead I need to master using my DL. Who needs a K10D with what you have just demonstrated? The lighting in all of your images is magnificient. Bravo!!

Thanks guys. I am going to post a link to a full size undedited version of the truck. Converted with Silkypix (default settings) into JPG. No PP whatsoever. Seems to me that Sigma 17-70mm is a real winner. All I did was to compress the JPG so it would come down in size for web posting. If the red color looks a little "blotchy" that's why.

Just goes to show that it is the photographer, not the camera that is the winner.
