Supporter or otherwise, I've kindly been sent the high-res images that
have caused the uproar. my only comment is this: A very, VERY, long
bow has been drawn over the existance of these birds. The photos look
fine to me, not that I'm an expert by any means. Yes there is a loss
of detail on the areas around the face that everyone is excited about,
but that is in line with my experience of digital imaging sensors; ie
if the colour is too intense for the sensor it loses resolution,
simple as that. Zoomed in it still looked fine, less detail, but still
clearly feathers. Would have been VERY hard to do in Photoshop. If
he'd used film we probably wouldn't even be having this discussion.


Who's hoping to start a film vs digital debate from this.
