Wubslin: There are very good reasons - which you should be able to figure out for yourself - why convicted criminals should not have access to this material.

I plead stupid..... what reasons?

In reply to: It's unbelievable good! To create the middle image from the one on the left is incredible. We will soon be seeing sensors with far fewer pixels. We don't need raw data, we need sophisticated processing.

Or, maybe, combination of raw data with sophisticated processing will yield exciting new possibilities in image precision. Which runs directly into the stated caveat, of coarse, that the created image is not real, with associated implications. I also wonder, (out of genuine complete ignorance), what is the scalability of this AI. Fascinating world we live in.

In reply to:

skytripper: To me, articles like this try to teach color-blind people to see in color. The visual relationships referenced in the article may, in fact, exist in a given shot. But photographers who have a "good eye" recognize such things without any analysis whatsoever. Is it possible to improve ho-hum photos by applying teachable visual principles? Yes. But only through long and diligent practice can one learn to see visual relationships more intuitively.

Disagree strongly. As a person who lacks a natural "good eye", I greatly appreciate the tips offered. They allow me to learn and not be limited by my first abilities. Tho I may never be a master, I can enjoy my hobby more by learning, and yes, I have learned by by articles like this, and yes my images are better for it, and no, it doesn't require undue diligence.
Thank you to the author, and to other authors who have offered similar tutorials.

It surpasses FlorescentElvisonblackvelvet; and definitively removes any shred of credibility from any photographer using it.
