I'm sorry you're going crazy.

Hold on....

Anyone can move sliders around in PP to push accurately-displayed colors outside the sRGB gamut. Garish saturation, HDR.... It proves strictly nothing.

Hold on....

Your idea of accurately displayed color is equally wrong but we can go there after your readers learn what you’ve written about color gamut of images should be ignored.

Look at how much you miss when you use sRGB and clip away TONS and TONS of information that your camera captured.

Nonsense. There are almost no naturally-occurring colors outside the sRGB gamut.

The nonsense stems from your keyboard sir.

If that’s true (it is not), can you explain the colorimetry based gamut maps of ACTUAL images in this video?

Everything you thought you wanted to know about color gamut

A pretty exhaustive 37 minute video examining the color gamut of RGB working spaces, images and output color spaces. All plotted in 2D and 3D to illustrate color gamut.

Low Res (YouTube): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0bxSD-Xx-Q

Or to save some time, explain the color gamut of just TWO actual photos vs. sRGB:

Solid is sRGB color gamut. What falls outside from the image clips!

Solid is sRGB color gamut. What falls outside from the image clips!

A sliver of neon-glowing greens, that occur on the leaves of plants growing under the deep-shade canopies in jungles. Nothing in flowers, sunsets, skintones and the like. Wide gamut is strictly for graphic artists who like to play with "unnatural" colors.

Rubbish, proved to be rubbish with two simple examples.

The reason there's so much ignorance on the subject of color management and color gamut, is that those who have it are so eager to share it!

Please stop sharing incorrect and unproven statements.

Not sure why you felt the need to provide incorrect text to an original post made April 26, 2014 (3 years!) other than for others to come here and call you out for misstatements and a misunderstanding of color color; feel better now that you have colorimetric facts as seen in just two examples to disprove your writings?
