    I've never seen Day-Glo saturation so delicately applied. Either that, or
    the pictures were meant to be an artist's rendering of what the earth might
    look like 8-1/2 minutes after the Sun went supernova.

  3. P'raps his monitor needs adjustment. Or yours. Or both. On mine it looks
    overdone, esp. on the flat panel, but perhaps that's the way it was, or
    the way he saw it, or what he wants to convey.

    The article, tho, is pretty well written.

    Which makes things like the TS hartblei lenses interesting. :)

    4X5 can be fun but using one "creates" different type of images than using
    other types of easier to use cameras. They are slow to setup and use so the
    images created usually end up looking like "arizona hiway" types of things.
    Not that they have to but seems to be how mine always do.

    The problem is that the Canon images have quite obvious RED fringing on
    the left edge of the rock. That should be removable, at least using
    ACR31. Did he not notice it?

    The ease with which digital images can be stitched with good stitching
    software allows four or nine or 16 images to be combined into one with
    the same aspect ratio as a single frame, with megapixel counts in the
    high hundreds or even thousands. Such images can blow away practically
    any 4x5, and probably 8x10 shots.
