Paul Guba: Comparing two cameras with similar sensors is like comparing two cars with V8 engines. The 645Z and the Alpa are two completely different machines. I won't justify the huge price difference but at the same time you can't compare the two as tools. Phase also has better software and years of experience getting the best data from a sensor. There both great cameras but the similarity ends at MP.

Raw, I used to shoot Hasselblad's Zeiss CF optics too, but didn't feel they were nothing so special, to write come about.

Funny Howmuchhehates Canikon's marvellous lenses. But what can I do, I get stunning results with them!

My photos cost still like $9 million each, they are not meant for the ones who want those poorer photos on market and are able to pay only $6,5 million.
So all you poor folks in your tacky little limousines, don't you come knocking on my door if you can't do better than that.

I'm sorry but there is no other way to describe this. Absolutely 100%tasteless. And I for one often like it when people challenge the so called good taste. This just was already way too much for me. I surrender in front of this horror, the peak of absolute tastelessness. This is it. You did it Like. You did it Peter. The absolute.

Deardorff: Taken with a Canon 1DsMkII camera.

Naturally nothing else from any other brand is worth anywhere near what Canon photos are...

He should have used Hasselblad Lunar at least.

Now I got it. Sherlock 'Rage' Holmes. He's giving us a hint of the nature of these "sales" - Ghost, Illusion, they don't exist.

Rage Joe: I think this Lik-guy is like a pretty average 'tourist photographer' (though a little more boring with his choice of subjects) who then later put his images on steroids in Photoshop. Just like the low-end cameras do out of the box, with a very vibrant color profile to please the ones who think that more color is better color. No, I am not saying it. No. The very beginners, normally.

Just google this Lick's images, if you don't get sick of overly saturated images. Jesus is coming soon, so it seems, and so on, you get the picture.

Thanks rb, but I think it all (or most of it what really makes the difference) lies in the endless tones, not in pushed up colors. I've shot both.

This must be worth $6,5 million.

I also have a photograph that I named "Illusion", one guy offered $9 million for it, but I declined the offer. Not good enough said my gallerist ; it's worth double that he said. So I'm pretty much the wealthiest photographer in the world and planet Mars too.

Wouldn't that be worth at least twice the amount when he puts the colors back! He has such an eye for the color! I'm waiting. 12 million at least.

It's pretty unbelievable. How wonderfully Peter finds these scenes in nature that the rest of us find only in Photoshop and on the walls of Burt Reynolds.

And by the way, he should try to sell his photos to Burt Reynolds, now that he's getting money through that auction.

I think it was his dad or smthg. His manager, his banker. Collaboration, you see. And now all the true connoiseurs with their Hasselblad Lunatics go and buy one for good money. And Lik likes it.

Just keep the water inside and put that thing in your camera bag while changing the location a bit. That's a good idea.

Yeah right, rethink it once more, just hang your camera bag under your tripod head.

You don't carry a camera bag? Well, how about a 20 cent plastic bag, fill it with dirt, sand, rocks or what evö. You can even cover your gear with it in case it starts to rain. And then later put all your trash in it.

Shamsheed: There has been a lot of debates and there will be more: What is portraiture? IMO there is no better or best. When it comes to people, there mood is either there or not. The photographer composes and shoot. Even technically, we should avoid negative critiques as the photographer is expressing himself.

You cannot compare Rap music to Rock. Everyone has their own styles. If you don't like Rap music, you will not leave your radio on and keep on criticising the singer, you will just change the channel. Just like here, you do not like it, move on.

THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRO AND AN NON-PRO. The pro will respect the work of others, and with positive criticism, will share their opinions on how they would have approached and executed the task.

Now question: what is a professional photographer?

@ b craw

I agree with you, if someone knows what they are doing they get it done with pretty much any kind of camera nowadays. Call that professionalism or whatever, vision, skill. Pick yours.

I feel that if I see a picture of a crap I can say: That's a picture of a crap. And likewise if the picture is just crap I can say just that.

( and likewise if you think that my comment is just crap I appreciate it if you say so. Learning, man, learning. )

TASTE this:

"A connoisseur (French traditional (pre-1835) spelling of connaisseur, from Middle-French connoistre, then connaître meaning "to be acquainted with" or "to know somebody/something.") is a person who has a great deal of knowledge about the fine arts, cuisines, or an expert judge in matters of taste"

Hehehehe!

"In many areas the term now has an air of pretension, and may be used in a partly ironic sense."

:)))) did they themselves, in an ironic sense :)
