I think you have summed it up very well. Reading these posts has been a learning experience, but also has shown me how little I know. A lot of what has been mentioned I have never considered and, for some reason, I have been mostly happy with the photos I have taken. That's not to say I haven't learned from this thread. Thanks, everyone!
