Image evaluation

All comments here based on viewing the 16-bit TIF versions on a wide-gamut calibrated NEC PA301W display. The JPEG versions are high quality, but might not preserve the total color or tonal range fully, in subtle ways.

Most images presented at 1/3 linear resolution (2400 pixels wide vs 7360 original).
