Delete in Coverflow; why next not selected?

I do this frequently when evaluating a pile of photos; sorting keepers from tossers. Coverflow is great to down arrow, see the images, and Send to Trash ones I don't like.

Problem is: After a selected image is sent to the trash, the next in the series is not selected. I see it in Coverflow, but I have to manually select it and resume the process described above.

Am I expecting Lion to do something which it shouldn't be expected to do, which is to select (highlight) the next image in the sequence?

thank you,

You're expecting something that the Finder doesn't do by default. No matter what view setting you're usingóList, Icon, Column, or Cover Flowóno item is selected once you delete the current selection. I described the strategy I use for these situations, detailed in a similar thread from last year.
