Hi Harmy,

I'm following your work with much enthusiasm. As a filmmaker, I'm very pleased, that you help preserve what needs to be preserved and at the same time, make a lot of people happy.

The only bit, that dissapointed me in 2.0 was the dedication to the IB print, which makes sense, to get information about the original coloring, but not so much about the original Hue and Contrast. They are photographed from the screen and it's almost impossible to get the birghtness "right" for those. You'll never have real blacks, because what is being photographed is light projected onto a white screen, so its probably going to be blown out. He even mentions this in his article.
For the new version, that's sadly what the grading looks now: Blown out... too bright.
Also for the sand scenes you loose color contrast that was there before.. now the faces, the clothes, and the sand look alike, the same baige/brown. Sadly, the BluRay looks way better now...
I liked it way more, when you trusted your own feeling.. (use the force, Harmy), like in 1.0.

Well, but since everyone seems to thing otherwise, that's just what I had to get out.. ;)

All the best!
