We all know about the audio Loudness War. Well here’s an analogy in the world of art…

Hmm… that’s an interesting analogy.

I never thought that a heavily compressed recording sounds more professional than a more breathing one, but still I want my mixes to sound as loud as possible… hmm…

Btw. who painted the upper picture on that page? Really fascinating…

Eyup!

Uh, yeah, but Van Gogh only had one ear, so his paintings were bound to look like that ???

Those pictures really show more of what happens you you loose bit depth - 24 to 16 to 8. That will cause less possible colors. To demonstrate loudness they just need to crank up the brightness until things start washing out (maybe that’s what they did actually). That’s a great analogy.
