And it's a fine one.

Chris, Can you wave your magic wand and make Julian come back to the forum, too?

Weird.  Even after clearing my cache, I still just get a Flickr error message.  Perhaps my internet tube is connected to the wrong supply tube?

Likewise. All I get is the deleted message and I am logged into the site.

....If you carefully read...
Strange how it can work wonders for one's comprehension, isn't it? ;)
Tsk, tsk! Taking part of a one sentence out of context changes it quite significantly as that is not what I said or meant.
I also read the sentence as meaning image was an example of too much HDR.
If you carefully read both sentences one can see you do not think the picture is HDR, but when reading second sentence it does read like you're saying there is too much HDR.

You shouldn't have to re-examine and carefully parse every sentence to understand what someone is posting though, it should be clear on first read. Which it wasn't due to not it not being clearly written.

Well, I do try to carefully read, but I also try to generally avoid split infinitives.   :(

... You shouldn't have to re-examine and carefully parse every sentence to understand what someone is posting though, it should be clear on first read...

To be clear on first read, several factors need to converge:

1. One needs to write at an elementary-school reading comprehension level. Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?. All bets are off if someone ventures beyond that level  ;)

2. One needs to understand what HDR is

3. One needs to be familiar with basics of formal logic (e.g., syllogism):

   Major premise: HDR opens (lightens) shadows

   Minor premise:  Shadows in the OP photo are too dark, blocked (i.e., the opposite of open)

   Conclusion: The OP photo is thus not an HDR

I, however, sympathize with your apparent inability to synchronize all three pre-conditions. ;)

Akin to my magical animated gifs  ::)

Is it perhaps time for me to delete both of these threads?

Jayney

I can't see the image anywhere, bloody Flickr is down and I'm understanding the complete opposite to what Julian felt. Bill said he likes shadows and how HDR strips shadows away. IE that there is too much detail in the shadows, an issue some people have with HDR. He than says the shadows in the image are too dark for his taste. That's the complete opposite to the affect of HDR so how can he feel he was accused of using HDR.

It's crazy that he felt the need to leave the forum based on not quite the harshest analysis anyone could make.

Bill. You've done nothing wrong.

Well, if I'm interpreting you correctly ;) ... maybe you should. This one has served its purpose anyway.

Not splitting infinitives is a nonsensical and irrelevant rule that came about as a result of some idiot teachers such as Henry Alford trying to shoehorn Latin rules onto English. English is rather obviously not Latin or even a Romance language seeing as it is Germanic in origin, so bit of a dumb idea all round really

And the picture seems to be back.

And the original thread unlocked. I just posted a comment on it.
