comment What is the “exposure triangle”?
@mattdm: Anecdotal evidence no proof. As you well know, analogies are methods to convey simple understanding. At some point they break down, as you so masterfully demonstrate--a reason why arguing by analogy is a logical fallacy. Agreed, a triangle conveys more than just threeness, but isn't the mere fact that is one of the simplest objects to visualize with threeness apt to make it easy to remember the three aspects to exposure? On paper a bulleted list is easy enough, but how about in conversation? Do people remember simple shapes better than they do a short list of words?

comment What is the “exposure triangle”?
Here is my problem with this answer: The majority of it doesn't answer the question. The OP asked "What is the exposure triangle?" not "Why is the exposure triangle a bad catchphrase?" You've put together an interesting argument, but you've failed to support your own premise: "That makes it a bad analogy, which can introduce more confusion than necessary, as new photographers attempt to reason from the information they've learned." No one appears to be confused by using a "triangle." Understanding Exposure has 169 reviews onAmazon with a 4.5 from 129 5 star reviews.

comment How can I ensure proper color rendition with browsers on wide gamut displays?
Sorry, the first part "setting your monitor to rgb" was bad advice "images will look like sRGB, but other images will look like crap." I should have tagged it as such, but I thought it was implied that it was bad advice. Also, in the setting in firefox, it doesn't say which profile it tags the image as. Third fixing color calibration and setting your firefox browser works great for yourself, but try getting everyone who is going to visit your gallery to do the same. That's the real problem with unmanaged images.
