You have certainly proved our point. Everything is subsidiary to the impact of the image. Is it a compelling picture? A strong image? Something worth a second look? These are the factors that matter. An image of supreme technical competence that is boring is nothing but a boring picture.

Many years ago in Tucson, a young man who had just gotten involved in photography was running around town with an 8 x 10 camera. He went to a lot of trouble to lug this beast but every picture he took was a beginner's cliché. He would have been far better off to have used a 35mm camera and developed his seeing enough to justify the 8 x 10 camera. But he was seduced by equipment as are so many hobbyists.
