Re: The more you know (about great photography) the less pictures you take?

I so agree with this.  Landscapes with no other interesting features (like airplanes, cars, buildings, other people, bugs, etc.) bore me stiff as subjects. I like to look at a well shot landscape photo, but have no interest in making such images myself.  If I can find it on a postcard, somebody else has already done the heavy lifting, and I can go looking for statues with weird expressions on their faces, hand lettered signs, and dogs.
