    Assuming you give a rat's ass about selling your work that is. Some don't.

    Agreed.

    But the thread is about the dissatisfaction and angst people feel about galleries and what is in them.

    The "I could have done that" statement is by definition saying, my work is as good as that expensive gallery print.

    If you don't care about selling your work, why would you care what is shown in galleries.

    If my hobby is building birdcages, why would I care that someone is getting rich with theirs.

    And the answer usually is..... human nature.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    There is one truly fun case for caring what we find in galleries even if we don't care about selling something.

    How many photographers does it take to change a light bulb?

    One hundred; one to change the bulb, and 99 to say...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I succumbed to the "I could have done that" once. I was looking at some of Warhol's Polaroid Bigshot prints.

    His were $5000. Mine would be $1 IF I included a free drink from Starbucks. In this case, a rose by any other name would not smell so sweet.
