I look at these photos and they remind me of amateur snapshots. Here we have an $8000.00 camera body in the hands of point and shooters with no thought of composition or exposure. The power of the black and white image is lost here.

Alfred Eisenstaedt, if he were alive, would do wonders with this camera. He would start with composition and exposure and then post process it to perfection. Wasn't it Ansel Adams who said something along the line of "the negative is the composer's score while the image is the performance"?

"The ‘machine-gun’ approach to photography – by which many negatives are made with the hope that one will be good – is fatal to serious results."
- Ansel Adams
