Now re-read what you wrote about cameras, and turn it into a brush argument.

Look, again I see what you are trying to say...but you are coming at it from such a techno weenie point of view.

Well, you sure know how to end the conversation. Congratulations.

Jesus Christ! I know some people here have no sense of humor....but I thought you did. I'm sorry. (it's like walking on f'n eggshells around here)

LOL, LOL, LOL!!!!!

Same argument. Michelangelo was an outstanding painter. He could have painted a masterpiece with a 4" brush. Just because he used a smaller brush to paint the sistine chapel doesn't mean he was a better artist with a smaller paint brush (insert high tech gizmo name here).

And, if I painted with the same brush Michelangelo used, it would not make me a better artist.

Therefore, I continue to contend that paintbrush does not matter. In the hands of a good artist, different paintbrushes can produce different results.
