44. Frankly, his skin looks unaturaly lightened in the lighter version. Where I
editing that video, I would enrich it to make it look more like the second image.

This is a loosing argument folks. He looks good either way.

And for those of you pursuing this, the next time Obama, or Hillary, or John McCain, for that matter, is doing a speech carried by different networks, switch your channels around and notice how incredibly different it can look from one station to the next. While this footage came off of a single camera, the same holds true for tape that is played back on a variety of systems and capture devices. The OP has a sort of "closed loop" of digitized video > into his own capture device, the people responsible had other sources, and even other formats of video.


Besides all that, Obama supporters (like me), does it ever occur to you that maybe it's not in our best interest to "make this a race thing", even if the other side would like to?

This is called cutting off your nose to spite your face. The second image is both better looking and closer to the reality of the man's skin tone than the lighter image.
