I did intend to pick up a couple of points from the discussion over the last couple of days, but Rhowan and Finley haven't been particularly well over the last couple of days so we've now had three nights in a row where we didn't get enough sleep: one consequence of which is that I'm not feeling particularly erudite this evening.
So, without further ado, here's this evening's shot. This was taken on the planet Venus earlier this week with Canon's new 128 gigapixel 'Truthomatic' camera. As you'll all be aware, the 'Truthomatic' has no user-configurable setting, produces files in a proprietary format that prohibits even the most gentle post-processing; yet nonetheless produces images that are, to all intents and purpose, 99.5% true. The Truthomatic mark II, expected later this year, will raise the truth/reality threshold to 99.999% which, claim Canon engineers, will result in images that are entirely indestinguishable from reality. So, that's it, no more digital art for me ;-)
