Some people seek out and pay a premium for hand stitched quilts. Some people don't care as much and will pay less for otherwise identical machine made quilts. Still others don't care at all and will buy the cheapest blanket they can find at Walmart.
Such is life...and the same applies for photography.
Be confident in the choices you've made, and appreciate good works of art no matter what medium or combination of mediums it's produced with.
