Trying to come to definitive conclusions by looking at a enlarged version of a low-res shot published on the web is not good for your health.

However I did just that myself a couple of minutes ago and could not, repeat not, see what you claim is so obvious.

CRT monitors could be the issue here? They vary considerably and, as far as I know, offer a resolution akin to that of non-digital TV. My monitor gives a resolution in excess of HDMI.

Very true, it's an amazing difference when you upgrade to a LED monitor.

I can see it without enlargement. It was a suggestion for those who don't see it

I do not claim it is obvious. For me it requires fairly close examination (probably not good for my health). And it works particularly well if I "relax" my eyes.

I have used a HP ZR30W (2560 x 1600) and ZR24W (1920 x 1200) as well as a LG W2220P (1680x1050). These are monitors I consider pretty good and which I use for all my imaging stuff (the HPs at work).

I'm off to bed. I hope it's gone away tomorrow
On a positive note: I have browsed through this B/W themed view and have to say that it contains sooo many striking images. Kudus to all contributors and thanks for sharing.

Well, hello sailor! Really nice looking B&W, WestCoast. If that says "sugar" it might have been good to include the whole word and sacrifice a bit on the left?

Great shots everyone... Yugus' decay, Brian's Sabrina and Svjetlana's #2 from 15 July leap out at me, but so much good!

Agree with maewpa. WestCoast, that shot could be a gem.
