I considered something like that had happened, but I figured I would point it out just to be safe. On the opposite end of that, 1600 x 1200 is pretty big.

On the first link, one photo is below minimum pixel requirements and a little unlevel. The other is, in fact, backlit.

Yeah... there was a problem in trying to say exactly what to do about that without knowing the specs of everything. Over 200 ISO film starts to stink. I think 2.8 would be a little too big, but...
