These leaves were turning red here in Northern Wisconsin.

Very nice. Even though DSLRs seem to have trouble with reds, your shot looks great. Maybe the touch of orange helps make it easier for the camera sensor?

Thanks, that is why I took the shot of the red leaf, to see how the digital image dealt with the color and it seemed to capture all of the detail available. It may have a slight orange tint, but there is definitely red there!

Also, it is a jpg, not RAW just to see the detail jpg can bring to an image. It looks sharp to me (slight USM) which makes me more confused about what people are talking about when they claim the DS produces photographs that are too soft.

Yes, I don't "get" the complaints about jpg with the DS--I have shot some indoor sports (volleyball) and they look great (I did reset the "tone" in the menu). For most things I do shoot in RAW, but I often need several hundred shots for a sporting event and it's a hassle to change cards sitting in the crowded bleachers in a gym, so I use a 1 gig card and shoot jpg.

It seems that the real problems with red are when they are highly saturated in real life--like red roses or deep red paint on a car.
