That's what I saw and said as much. Likely my monitor (1152 x
864 Viewsonic A90f+) displays differently from yours but the picture

A real friend in a camera club will tell the truth. Others
will politely lie and in so doing serve up the condemnation of faint

gratuitous and malicious comment. It is up to the reader to determine
the difference.
