Yes, it is narrower at the bottom and top, but through the very long body it continues to be triangular and voluminous. 2) While HDR indeed means a larger distance from “black” to peak white, it also means a significantly larger volume of colors since each hue can now be broken down into many more levels of luminance. Having all these additional colors is not nearly as meaningful without having significantly more pixels to apply them to (i.e. 8 million vs. 2 million). The larger color volume used with an expanded level of detail is what will make “HDR” images look more like what our eyes can see. Thanks for the nice article.
