This thread has got way off topic. The only thing I posted initially is two different screen shots of RDR2, one using the SDR settings and one using the HDR settings, that's it. All the other comments were regarding how inaccurate the pics are and people took the thread into a different direction from there since they didn't like the fact that the game using HDR settings is more detailed than SDR settings, even though the signal isn't true HDR. Just look at the two pictures and take from it whatever you wish. Obviously, the majority of the people here are just trolls trying to be argumentative about anything anyone has to say because all they do is sit home, play video games, and try to make themselves feel better because their social awkwardness. Just look at the pictures between the two settings and move on.
I said from the beginning that RDR2 was fake HDR, but regardless of it being fake HDR, it still shows more detail, especially from eliminating the hazy look of the game. Some people will agree and some won't. The best picture anyone can get will be up to their own eyes on their own equipment. Excuse me, but I now I need to get back to work.

As an owner of that TV and having read many reviews, I'm not but let's drop that.
Listen, all people were trying to do was help you get the most accurate image. The fact of the matter is that RDR 2 is fully rendered in SDR and when you output the game in HDR all it does is put the SDR image in a larger HDR container. That's it, no difference in rendering, graphical features or anything, it just gets dumped in the container at the end of the line. We tried to help you get the most accurate image but you got defensive like your gear was being attacked when you seemed to not fundamentally understand what was being said. (Hence you liking a post where someone was paraphrasing what I was saying but jumping down my throat.)
You made the assumption that you were taking photos in RAW with all the same settings when it can be seen in your JPG metadata that was absolutely not the case, hence skewing information. You also went as far to claim the same lens, etc. when you used a Galaxy S8+ smartphone. I also pointed out that your ISO, shutter speed, and time of day in game in your pictures were all different but apparently pointing out facts are "argumentative" to you. (Also, just FYI, your GPS metadata is attached to your JPGs so you may want to strip that.) The shadows, time of day lighting color temperature and level of atmospheric haze are different in your two pictures.
You’re now on the defense making more false assumptions about peoples' intent and trying to make broad stroke attacks. Perhaps you should dial back all your assumptions? They’re leading you down a path of fallacies and making you look silly.
People are just correcting your misinformation, helping you get the most accurate image and are not trying to be argumentative, rather have a discussion and point out facts.
As far as people sitting at home all day, playing video games, I wish I was the case but the development discipline I work on is in charge of our game's engine, so I don't have that luxury.
