There are many contributing factors that make up a good photograph.

Wayne's question was specifically about a technical, rather than compositional, aspect of photography. I'm sure Wayne and I and everyone else understand the "seeing" part as the most important requirement. I'm also sure that the people contributing to this thread actually spend lots of time "utilising the available equipment".

BTW, the differences we're discussing aren't very subtle, at all. They are easily discernable in a 5x7 print.

Take care,
