Sunset, scattered clouds, moon over the mountains, light changing fast...D100
adobe color space, profiled camera JPG. I consider this a "digital" shot. This was also shot with film...trees on mountain where black. When the film was scanned, it still didnt look as good as the straight shot from the d100. The person who was the "official wedding photographer" hates my guts! I love my d100's!

I agree completely, having shot a wedding with my D100 also.
Outside of this forum, be very careful at suggesting that digital can in any way equal or better film. I tried that recently in the Weddings forum, and was told that I was an idiot extraordinaire, that my photography sucked, that I wasn't able to hold my camera correctly, that I was rude, didn't listen, and several other choice jabs.
The world isn't ready for the truth! (Yet)

Now this is the flip side to comments about D1 series / D100 JPEGs looking 'flat' because of the camera compressing all of its available dynamic range into the 8 bit format: your shot (and comments on what happened to the film version) make a beautiful example of how this can be a positive advantage.
Incidentally, when you say a 'profiled camera JPEG' are you referring to a custom tone compensation curve or an ICM profile?

Sorry, there should be a comma between profiled camera and JPEG. I've profiled the camera for various light sources with the Macbeth Color Eye and Monacocolor calibration systems. I use Monaco to edit the profiles because of the various output devices we use. So the camera has several ICC profiles depending on the light source. I've created a droplet in PS to batch all the images in a folder and convert it to my custom icc. And yeah, i shoot jpegs!
