So, I ended up playing around with my camera last night. More pics resulted. Also got one of Ro. Think I’m doing better with the gimping of photos, particularly on the color front. I offer the following pic of Ro as an example, in the first I controlled the color of ro and the background separately with brightness/contrast adjustments. In the second, I simply manipulated the color curve to consolidate brighter colors, increase contrast on darker ones, and generally brighten the pic. I like the latter pic much better:
