Thank you for the kind words - that little fella sure is a charmer..lol!
Gregory, I updated the post with the info, which should have been there to begin with. Thanks for reminding me.
Thomas, I absolutely post process my photos - often in several different ways. A certain part of the joy I have with photography comes from seeing what I can - and cannot - do with the images. Unfortunately I'm somewhat impulsive and explorative in my approach to this, so I don't keep notes on what I've done. Sharpening was certainly part of it - as I recall some high pass sharpening in there for sure.
I'm not terribly conscious about the distinction between what the camera does and what I do on the computer - to me it's not even post-processing. There are no pictures I've ever taken that I felt were complete until I have processed them with the tools I had - the darkroom in the old days and now the computer.
However, I am very interested in and appreciative of feed back and suggestions. If you feel that there's too much, too little or something else that could have made the images better, I'm keen to hear it as I respect your learned opinion in these and many other matters
