I can't believe I never experimented with the light smoothing control. But I definitely will now.
And, Ernie, I'm not sure what photo you're talking about. But this was taken at Forest Park, where most of my photos are taken. =)
Very very cool. The vignetting makes me feel like I am looking out of a tunnel onto the railroad ahead. Whether or not that is what you were trying to achieve, I think the vignetting works. The landscape also has a nice golden warmth to it.
