Breathtaking image, Loretta. Congratulations. I'm also curious: did you use the D100's Normal, Vivid, or some custom image setting. I have a D70 and am interested in shooting landscapes, seascapes, etc. I mentioned the Vivid setting to someone at a camera shop, and he recommended against it, saying that the camera's setting can be a bit "heavy-handed" and that I should make any adjustments in PS. Thoughts?

Congrats again!
