Thank you both! Nikki, this is kind of a resub (for my "January of resubs")---I'd entered a larger crop version earlier, that showed a bit of the neighboring mosaic on the left; I agree, this comp is better! #8305498

Many thanks, folks! This rework is definitely better than the first version, and I don't know why I didn't try this tighter crop to begin with! #8401914
