Stupid, asinine, inaccurate, dated, close-minded, and ignorant.

YMMV.  No more surprising than it is surprising that some people when faced with a challenge to their understanding respond with denigration.  My friend.

Fwiw, 800 px. deprives the viewer an opportunity to appreciate this image.  As a large thumbnail, it's intriguing.  Is this the size of the end product?

Be useful too if the term non-destructive/parametric editing in PS was defined. At leat the non destructive part which IMHO isn't possible in Photoshop proper (it is in ACR using parametric edits). Existing pixels values that are changed are destructive. Do it in high but, it's a moot point.

The screenshot crop below shows the de-bayering methods of Raw Therapee. The methods used by most software are there.

My understanding is that ACR/Lightroom uses the AHD method with some modification.

If you want to see how AHD would work with the deconvolution in RT or the NR of RT you can test it for free. You can also test how AHD compares to AMAZE. AMAZE wins hands down IMO.

So, in-camera, turn off any noise reduction (or set it to lowest setting), set sharpening to zero, take a JPEG + RAW, and process the RAW with the same settings and compare it to the JPEG.  This would be very helpful...

Hi Robert,

SDIM0027.JPG is out of camera, SDIM0027-2.JPG has been exported from SPP and further processed in LR.

  When/if I have time, I'll put something together to illustrate a non-destructive PS workflow and post it here on LuLa.

Thank you, because I'm kind of with Andrew on this...

Ok, so I have been doing some more digging on the A/B Merrill/Quattro image series I took.

I have two versions, one at 100%, it shows the Merrill pulling ahead of the Quattro, but then when you zoom in to 200%, your perception changes, and you can actually begin to see why the Merrill looks it is resolving more... except it is not, it actually not resolving the small yellow fruits you thought it was resolving at 100%. Instead, the Quattro actually is showing the roundness and discerning them better.

Note: These were taken from SPP 16 bit TIFFs all NR and sharpening at the lowest positions.

I think there's a good chance we will see live view enabled on this back in the near future. Smiley

Brief, funny and surprisingly accurate  Smiley

P.S. Point D could explain this current thread on LuLa (sorry, Dave, couldn't resist Tongue)

Part of my challenge is waiting for the right season and right type of clouds (being "weather wise") as well as the right light for an open vista. A lot of the vistas feature limestone bluffs overlooking wooded rolling hills and usually a fine river, Missouri / Mississippi sized to a gentle stream. Frame /foreground seems to be crucial in creating some interest. The rolling hills aren't all that interesting in themselves. The most interesting part of Ozark/ Southern Illinois landscapes to my mind are the exposed rocks with fantastic weathered shapes found on forested hillsides, or rocks that are part of what Missourians call "shut-ins" (small rocky gorges). These are often the easiest type of compositions, because one is close enough to the rock that most times one can find a good view not obstructed by a tree. Macro and near-macro is always worthwhile.

Thanks for pack info. I need to go into REI and see if I can get fitted.
