I'm sure you can see a difference between these two images, clearly Nikon has developed its image processing engine since the D50. Image detail is better with no artifacts (there are some on the D50 image) which indicates improved demosaicing, edge and texture detail are also improved as a consequence, the overall result being an iamge which looks more natural yet crisp and detailed.
