    I took this in the spare of the moment... we were on vacation and she sat down by one of the resorts fountain.

    You spend a lovely time away, so it seems!
    I think I like the last one best of all, too, though it is suffering from compression just a bit...

    As long as your wife looks totally unpixellated in the original file you are fine. You would always make a print or so from that and not from the file that you compressed for web-showing, wouldn't you?

    Or have you selectively brightened her figure - and quite a bit even? Was she much darker in the original pic? That might also account for the amount of noise (or pixelation) of her in the last photo.

    Ok, I have to ask, how can you tell that it's suffering from compression? What would i be looking for to see that in the shot?

    Look how her head is all pixellated, you cannot even tell where her eyes and nose and mouth are. OK, mouth, yes.
    The photo was saved at only 5 out of Photoshop, which is a low resolution. So THAT may be the reason for the pixellation. OR NikonD40x@ Denver selectively brightened his wife's face very much against the background. I don't know. Do you see what I am talking about?
