Wow! I LOVE the moon shot, but really all of them are wonderful. Looks like the K5 did a brilliant job for you, a good tool in capable hands. You should be very proud of your shots.

Looks like you had a great time Tony. I hope you took the interior shots in RAW as there is so much more DR that can be pulled from those shadows !

Unfortunately They are all JPGS.

Great shots Tony. Bringing the K5 was definitely the right choice.

I'd still give it a try, although you won't recover as much, but if you were using the 16MP Jpgs then using e.g. Shadow recovery in Aperture 3 (I don't know the LR3 or PS equivalent) you can pull make a lot and make those interiors really shine !

I think this is the PP, that Kevin means ... by use of the Shadow/Highlights filter in PS. ... Jack.

Yes Jack .... that is the tool I mean. It has to be used judiciously otherwise it can introduce noise or PF and other horrors (that then need to be addressed) but can drag a lot back and really expand the DR.
