Cool Cooking versus quality.

In looking through the many images of the 4014 posted, while there are several "cooked" images (some with very high hit counts), the bigger issue is just a lot of poor quality images. I guess the news value of the 4014 transcended image quality in terms of the screeners' standards. Which I could understand in the beginning, but as the volume of 4014 posts increased so should have the quality threshhold. But it's all for fun so I can't get too excited.

Photoshop and Lightroom make photo manipulation so easy. One result is a proliferation of "styles". And it also provides tools to try to improve those less than perfect exposures. Mostly all that is good, but it adds some additional dimensions to judging what we like or don't like.
