Does it look too dark (the colors--not the subject matter)?
p.s. a jpeg version always looks a little drab, doesn't it? I'm trying a tiff for the 2nd image....
...and it still looks totally blown out. Hmmph. The PDF I saved looks OK on my computer screen, but I don't think Blogger displays PDF's, does it?
(UPDATED AGAIN) I took yr advices, Ellis and Jimmy (via phone)...I think this is better, but there is some kind of gamma loss...or something?
