Look who's talking. You don't even use GND filters yourself.

I did, but I am not a landscape photographer in general. Or rather, I photograph whatever I see most of the time. And with whatever I have in hand, camera phone, dSLRs, compacts, etc.

Odd, isn't it, that he was never able to explain why/how an optical GND filter was superior to the digital solution?

He posted the images, and very good ones. You posted none.

Since you established in that thread that you don't know anything about GND filters or merging+masking in PS, why don't you take one of goWex's classes and then take one of John Paul Caponigro's classes and report back to us on which of the two has a deeper understanding of the issue.

Since you established on many threads that bluff is a photographic technique you feel most comfortable with, I don't think I should be spending time on whatever nonsense you come up with, again. It's time you learned something on your own.

Ironic, isn't it, that of the most recent (Summer 2014) close-ups you've posted to your site, the better ones are f/16 (one is even f/45?).

I have several sites, but I think the image you refer to is this one,

Ironic indeed. So tell us, what is wrong with this image?

Here is the hint , feel free to bookmark it.

The ones at f/11 all exhibit problematic OOF issues on the flower-subject. Oh well, live and learn...

Vs. no images at all. Should we call it "Brought to you by a man who SAYS he can make good images"?

And what joys do you have constantly hanging out in a forum for a format you don't even shoot? (Think twice before you think you know the answer.)

Do you have a camera?

Since this thread was moved to the Photographic Science and Technology forum, I will refrain from replying to your usual bluster, BS and attempts to turn our discussions into some kind of macho thing about who's the better photographer.  However, I will take you up on the t/s bait you dangled above since it at least has a remote chance of leading to something of some relevance to this particular forum. What point are you trying to prove with your "hint"?  Dazzle us...
