Hi guys,
You're right, all of you. But in the end (for me), nothing beats holding a real, large negative (like 8x10") in your hands, looking at what you created yourself ... crooked as it may be ... and make a beautiful contact print with it.

Or as Ansel Adams said:
" ... avoiding the common illusion that creativity depends on equipment alone ... "

Just my little stone in the pond
