Careful now... there are a couple people in the D90 forum that would love to start threads arguing with you on that.

Fact is... you're right.

Yves, I had not seen pictures of your daughter in a long time, she is growing so fast to become a good looking young lady. Congrats on your family and your continued talent, you have been always an inspiration to enjoy this great art/hobby, your pictures cost me a lot of money !! :),

no, he would of needed to be closer to the subject to get the same frame sooo she would of had a larger nose.... or with knowing what to change the image would look largely the same.

But I loved the D1x (manual white balance was always spot) Sold it only to get wireless TTL with the D2h.

Good camera, nice image

a photograph is about the final product, not the process
In reply to Yves P., Apr 5, 2012

The whole point of image making is the image itself. The gear side is for geeks and hobbyists. The average viewer only sees the final image and could care less how it was produced. A worthwhile image is the only thing left in the end, the gear itself will be long gone.

And 90% of the images coming out of all this new 'quick and easy' digital gear is useless drivel anyway. Luckily it's all digital so that it's not wasting a lot of chemicals and other materials (except in the manufacturing process which is a whole other waste issue in itself.) And thankfully those images won't be around to have to look at since they will eventually disappear into the darkness of the virtual cyber-universe.

Use what works for you personally and forget what other people say (you can forget what I'm saying, too, for that matter.)

And remember that the real motivation behind the photo industry is about profit making.
