    Now my point is where does it say that we have to produce razor sharp pictures, the size and deffinition of grain, if a picture should have high or low contrast and if details should be present? Surely regardless of how the photographer/artist intends the picture to look it is still photography.

    Repeating myself we worry too much about technical excellence in the work of others when the fact is it doesn't matter, if you don't like the work ignore it or better still go out and shoot your own to your own standards.

    Mmmmm rant over!

    This has to be one of the best things I have heard on the net in a long time. I can't believe that more people don't feel this way

    When I was in school 35 years ago AA bashing was heavy then. I guess it will be for the next 100 years. When your on top everyone under you wants to bash you.

    Read Westons day books if you want to know how photography struggled in the 20"s 30"s and 40's with this same thing.
