Excellent, Dave. What camera are you using? How many megapixels?
My 9 oz. Olympus w/ 3.2 mps takes great shots like yours but my 4 oz. VuPoint w/ 3.2 mps takes dull, dingey, off color shots. So, the megapixel count apparently doesn't tell the whole story.

I'm using the Pentax Optio s5z, its a 5 megapixel camera which I take all my pictures at full resolution for cropping purposes later. This camera takes pretty good video to (640 x 480 @30 fps), weighs 4.6 oz with sd card & battery. I believe its price has dropped down to the $160 level since the new release of the Pentax A10.

I had messed with the contrast on this camera with this flight, I think I'll just leave the setting alone next time since I thought alot of them were on the bright side
