Around a year ago I searched my Google Photos for "snow" and was very disappointed with the large number of false positives it gave. Also that it raised doubts around the false negatives it could be giving which are much harder to quantify or identify.

I have now repeated the search

and found very little change and no obvious improvement. This isn't the picture we get of computers learning and improving.

Google Photos also found an exposure bracketed set in my images and produced an HDR for me, which I show on the right below.

Overlooking the poor quality and the button on the top right, which come from the screen capture, I would think most would agree that the colours go Google's HDR new unrealistic and unpleasing. Again not the performance of a leaning algorithm.

Not a very nice looking posting but hopefully interesting.

Lets have your views.
