Comical.. considering DJ has always said that my images DOES NOT HAVE PROCESSING or at times MIKE DOES NOT USE PROCESSING..
And this, when it comes to the exact same person who he is comparing the shots to: YOUR SHOTS HAVE PROCESSING..
And look back over the many post that substantiate this. To all of a sudden, my shots are loaded with Processing..
Gus stop making this stuff up. just think about the many times DJ has mentioned how clean my shots are and that I don't use processing, to include letting the other person know he has a lot of Processing in his shots. And not surprised at all, because neither of you ever root any of you testing into science or anything that makes sense.
You have posted a total contradiction, from what is already known as FACT.
I agree that it is not 100% the correct way of doing this using scaling and lossy formats etc
Brilliant and true to your mindset. Agreeing that's it's not the correct way, and then saying it should be OK under the circumstances, makes zero sense. But since you are being consistent here with convoluted answers, I say I should be a little more understanding that your motives/emotions are more driving here than science or logic, sure it some kinda make sense, but maybe not perfect sense, but maybe enough sense to use to make a point that's pointless... OK, I think I got this figured out..
When one is sincere (honest) in posting they will stick with the original way we have been posting in this thread. That is to post a batch of shots at once. That way the setup can be viewed from various perspectives. We had found out that most of the single shot posting has been, shots that has been enhanced or those out of a 100 batch that look good enough to use.
And here is the real killer on this one. DJ has pointed out consistently in the past that the other person uses a lot of processing, and have made it clear constantly that MP does not. With DJ suddenly doing a 180 flip, the bigger problem is not my newly developed means of making my shots sharper, when I'm 100% against it, to us finally seeing that the other person no longer uses processing. Boy what a coincident here.
And what was going on in my compared shot when it had gained over 500KB in file size, yet it was converted to a smaller image..
He never answered that one..
Anyways guys, have fun. But in your doing so be respectful to not use others images for the sole purpose of trying to make the person look bad. Because that's all this amounts to.
And one last thing, if you knew what to look for even my modified, compromised and manipulated shot still handled resolution better. The other shot appears slightly sharper, but definitely did not do a better job resolution wise. That is why the shot version I'm using has the darker and slightly different colors of shades.
MP is using processing and has noise in his images...so ignore everything in the past when DJ Dee posted that my shots were very clean or clean.
