Thanks heaps Andrew!! My printing philosophy tends to be "print to the contrast and exposure where most things are visible" - so once I can see detail in shadows, and haven't burnt out highlights, that's 'it'. I have never liked my attempts at dodging and burning, and thus leave my meddling to only exposure, composition, filtering, & 'being there'!! Although I do like spot metering, so I'm not at all 'against' faffing about...

Marc!
