I wish everyone, who blames weak image quality to preproduction software, wrong colorspace, gods, bad weather or whatever to try develop these raw files!

No you don't. You want them to just look at your conversion.

Because if they actually went and developed the RAW files, they would see what you had done was rather abnormal...

Some highlights:

That struck me as odd. I thought, how could and ISO 400 image end up so noisy?

So I tried to reproduce your result. You know what? Even pushed up two stops, even with contrast turned way up and turning off all noise reduction, I was never able to close in on exactly the lengths you went to get such a large amount of noise.

So I present to everyone here, what that same image looks like even when you take an ISO 400 image, push it by a stop or so, and increase contrast (with the default level of ISO 400 noise reduction applied):

"Unfair!" I hear you cry. "You do not increase saturation to +2.0 in order to try and increase noise as much as possible!".

Well here's that same image with the (ghastly) application of +2.0 saturation:

So please do tell us, just why did you remove all noise reduction, and then increase saturation by +2.0 before posting samples? And then what ELSE did you do I wonder?
