    Oh for Pete's sake! Do you even BOTHER
    answering this idiot moron?
    Last time he used film Kodachrome 25
    didn't even exist!

    No. I left the sat exactly at default.
    THAT, is the little flaw in your argument!

    When was the last time you saw an orange boat that looks
    EXACTLY the same in the shade as in the sun? You call
    that "natural"? NO WONDER you can't see the problem...

    Bret, don't be thick, ok? It's demeaning, even for you!
    You can read SMALLER text in that image, then on the hat
    it disappears?
    Can't you pull your head off Canon's arse for long enough
    to even reason that is simply NOT natural and is IMPOSSIBLE
    unless there is something very wrong with that processor?

    Clearly Noons is nonplussed by logical argument, so the usual ad hominem
    attacks ensue. A sad case.

    Lessee, what words descriptive of Noons come to mind? Argumentative,
    yes; truculent, often; abusive, mostly; belligerent, nearly always;
    bellicose, the same; ignorant, certainly; word-challenged, well proven;
    repetitive, obviously; knowledgeable, only in his dreams; a credit to
    his country, not likely; foul-mouthed, to the nth degree; a useful
    contributor to general photographic knowledge, not often.

    Yes, a truly sad case.
