Compare & Contrast

In my never ending quest to provide for the readers the best HQ image available on the net, I have come to a dilemma, and I hope you take the time to comment so that I can better facilitate your enjoyment of looking at pictures of hot men!

The following images were taken from the November 2011 issue of Cosmo. As you will see, there are pairs of similar images. For each pair, the first image (or to the LEFT) is the extracted from a digital copy of Cosmo. The second (or to the RIGHT) is the scanned image from an actual print of the magazine.

Please take some time to compare the two versions.

In your comparisons, I hope you found that:

1) The digital source is blurrier than the scanned image.
2) The scanned image has a lot of weird scanned imperfections, including bad alignment, dust, scratches, wrinkles, and general lack of sharpness.
3) The scanned image is slightly more colorful than the digital image.

So here is your job! Please report your thoughts & findings! For example, if you were to save these images, would you rather save the scanned image or the digital image? Also, should I even bother wasting my dollars to buy and scan the magazine...if the digital source is 'good enough'?

Prefer the scans, but if you save money not scanning - well saving's always a good thing too!

Most scanners come with a white backing sheet, this reflects light back through the picture and causes many of the problems, place a black card at the back of the image to be scanned and many of the problems disappear...

thanks merlin. i actually place a milana colored sheet behind the image to decrease some of the reflection problem. but maybe i'll try a black paper instead.

I think the digital images are better. Brighter, clearer, less visual artifact.

I think the digital looks better. It's much sharper than the scanned ones.

Agreed; digital is better, EXCEPT that the color on the last guy is for some reason warmer in the scanned shot. But the difference is most apparent in comparing the face of the third guy in the two versions. His good looks (incl. lips) really shine in the digital picture, whereas in the scanned version he appears somewhat blurred and dull. Incidentally, do you imagine that he got some cosmetic help in the lip dept.? I've only rarely seen a man with such deep lip color; yet it's not glossy as would be the case if he had out and out used lipstick (ugh).

I think you don't need to scan pictures if you can post digital ones. The quality is the same, digital are maybe a little better. Please keep doing your job! Great Blog! Greatings from Poland!

You save money and the environment with the digital. And we don't get those really ugly page breaks with two-page spreads. So, I vote digital!

Great blog! I check it out regularly.

Go with what YOU like Ken. If it's a Mag I collect, I'll buy it AND save the digital. If it's something I'm getting just to share, I won't buy it.

However, sometimes the digital image doesn't have text data that is fun to read. Wait, we were supposed to READ right? :-P

Que fantasía más fuerte, tumbado de espaldas con las manos atadas, le bajan el pantalón y el slip, sus bellas nalgas, en todo su explendor, lucen indefensas temiendo ser asaltadas, unas fuertes manos las abren para facilitar el paso de una lengua que deslizándose empieza a lamer el ano, que es pequeño y está muy cerrado. La yema del dedo pulgar lo frota y luego presiona hasta penetrar, empuja hacía la rabadilla estirándolo, la lengua vuelve a humedecerlo, ahora no hay marcha atrás, le colocan una mano en la espalda y le presionan con fuerza para inmovilizarlo, mientras con la otra sujetan una fuerte polla que a base de presión empieza a abrir el ano, el chico suplica mientras siente como el ano se abre, tiene miedo porqué la polla es fuerte y lleva camino de rasgarle, pero aguanta. Poco a poco va entrando, el chico lucha por desatarse pero no puede, suplica pero no es atendido, suúnica esperanza es dilatar pronto para poder soportarlo, por fin la polla entra en su totalidad... Ahora los movimientos son violentos, con el culo ya abierto siente como se desliza hacia dentro y hacia fuera. Poco a poco el joven siente como la polla se desliza dentro cada vez más suave, el dolor va siendo sustituido por una suave fricción que le humedece por dentro al tiempo que le provoca una fuerte erección. Siente como le abrazan y le cogen la verga, el macho encima cada vez le folla con más fuerza y más deprisa, acompasando los movimientos con la masturbación de su verga. Su cuerpo se arquea y solicita la boca del macho, se está corriendo, con un gusto que nunca hubiera imaginado. No habia terminado de vaciarse, cuando sintió como su recto se empezada a llenar de liquido espeso y caliente, el orgasmo del macho fue largo y demoledor, entre fuertes embestidas consiguió descargarse. El chico se relajó al sentir como le sacaba la polla, pensó que por fin le desataria las manos. Pero se equivocaba, aquello duro solo unos minutos, el macho le volvió boca arriba y arrodillandose entre sus piernas las alzó y volvió a entrarle, la penetrazión fue más rapida y más profunda, pero el placer fue mucho mayor para los dos.
