I've posted two images to movieeditor.com, and hope Robin can advise  
the URL for downloading, but until then for a little while they're  
available as noted below.  The .NEF file is straight from the  
camera.   The .jpg is the result of converting the NEF to TIFF and  
then using Cinepaint.  The process of conversion is not overly simple,  
nor too complex, once understood.   The work with Cinepaint took 5  
minutes.   I'm very happy with the results and now have a proper  
workflow using open source.   Robin Rowe, Kai-Uwe, Frank Peters, Tom  
Huffman, and Eric Robinson helped me substantially in getting  
Cinepaint up and running on OS X Intel.  Frank's work in colorspace  
conversion should be made available to the community, a pipeline run  
from a script he wrote.

these images are owned by me and are not to be distributed to the  
public without my permission, thank you.
