Pooey? That's Phooey! The former sounds a bit "excret-a-tory"
But of course I did see the incredulity lurking behind the phraseology, and that served to prompt my response. I simply used your 'quote" as the vehicle to get the trip started.

and as for the ambient shots... of which I could barely tell if any was actually present... the pics broke down considerably... which again at only 70"... was pretty poor indeed.
It was a 75"er, on whose surface the image was being "Xeroxed' from just 7.5' away by a Epson 9700 with 200,000;1 Dynamic CR. That's 45 Foot Lamberts of 1080p brightness workin' it's magic there...the surface itself has little to offer the equation beyond being there and not being too terribly inadequate. Now really Guys...how many times have we seen similar postings from PJ noobs who have just got their PJ un-boxed, shot it onto their odd, various colored painted walls (...some with texture no less...) and waxed amazed at the quality they got even under those circumstances? Several, don'tcha think?
If someone wants to shoot an image on their wall simply because they are unmotivated to do something about then so be it. But to recommend a tan paint, when someone could just as well get a neutral or near neutral gray or white, because they are already at the big box store (since they were there on your recommendation to get the Glidden you chose) is ignorance at best.
Guys, ya gotta cut frasia a bit of slack here (...if only a bit...) because he is in fact a "noob" as far as considering paint on a wall as a alternative to a Mfg. Screen. He is in fact a Dealer for Black Diamond Screens, and as such is really the epitome of the "Odd Man Out". In my experience, exceedingly few Mfg Screen Dealers EVER
would begin to consider such....it doesn't make any sense for them to do so.
frasia is on a 'discovery jag' and his comments must be considered as coming from someone who was not expecting such results. Kinda like a Preschooler who has a bent toward Finger Painting. If he stays the course and graduates into Primary School, he's gonna learn how those neutral Grays mixed into Satin/Eggshell bases would have accomplished a lot more accurate colors, and the use of a denser paint would have prevented the light absorption that creates less than stellar images. I for one do not doubt that his viewed results are quite a bit better than the Photos indicate...as he's still learning how to take such shots.
I actually hope he continues down the road to revelation. If he can drag a few other malcontents with him, perhaps they too might become more educated and stop making uneducated and myopic viewed observations.
So cut frasia down from the Scaffold, he doesn't deserve hangin'.
.......Ok, maybe a short stint in Solitary, but that never kil't no one no how.
Meanwhile, we are serving to keep an otherwise non-relevant Thread alive here, and he's appreciative of that I'm sure.
