Thank you for your kind words and advice. I am shooting RAW/Fine but have much to learn when processing. No money for software right now. I am using ViewNX2 and FastStone Image viewer. I also am finding I often add more sharpening, contrast and saturation so I have adjusted both the standard and neutral camera settings and will be seeing how that works. So much fun to play and learn. I will need to study more on recovering the shadow areas when underexposing to not blow out the highlights. Digital is so much more fun than film since it is so much easier and less expensive to work the learning curve.
