As for your latest statement that mm's and pb's shots are the best you have seen and are representative of actual comparisons !! then I think It is a good time for me to end this conversation.
I am not going to continue it has gotten way past any point of being constructive or civil and I want to keep this from escalating
One word of advice Patrick listen to some of the ideas people are giving you .
West sounds like he would be a good person to talk with to make sure the camera setting are set properly .
Good luck, I hope this ends up as fun an event as it should.
I will assume that my reply to Westshore was posted while you were typing your response.
I think your idea is sound. This conversation should end. I'm still looking for anything constructive you did contribute to this thread, beyond the usual MM bashing, but I'm sure you valued your input. I know I got a big rush out of each and every syllable.
Added: I have observed lots of back-and-forth in the past six months. I've sent messages to both pb and MM that I thought arguing with people on here was wrongheaded, and nonconstructive. Some of you just don't like them, more MM than Pete, and they're not going to change that. They've done as much for these concepts in the past six months as anyone, probably more because they were working together and sharing. And now they've shared it with everyone.
This is not to dismiss the work of Mission and Lyle and Benven and (others forgive me, but those are the only people whose work I copied to my uberspreadsheet of all formulae.) As I've said about a dozen times, I like Lyle's 12i mix better than RS_MMaxxMudd (original formula, not the subsequent ones) and that's why I think the BF mix will be even better. And not just because I had to go out and drop another $5 at Michael's today for some paints that were probably adequately covered in my already vast inventory of small bottles. I wanted to faithfully reproduce it, like I tried to do with CG ($24 in paint from Dick Blick).
