Lol, Batwister, for some reason I feel like you are missing the point I made in saying that above all else, the impact of the photograph has to be exceptional, no matter the medium. As for the rest of it, like I or not, digital photography is computer photography, talent being equal, it is going to increasingly come under more wallet driven scrutiny when compared to something that was hand made...that is not a product of what we as image makers say or want, it is a product of what the digital age is doing to perception as a whole...hand made is hand made, digital will never be that.

And this is simply the way it should be
