The proof is a good photographer can get the most out of what ever camera he has. That doesn't change the fact that a P&S is limited to a narrow range of photography with static subjects in good light and prints that are not too big.

  1. Having something to say,
  2. knowing how you want to say it,
  3. and knowing how to make the gear you have, do what you need it to do
  4. AND knowing when the gear can't take you where you want to go.

I think all good photography starts with the photographer, and pretty much ends with the photographer. The gear is important to be sure, but only so far as the photographer knows how to use it.

I wanted to add the obvious that any photography, good or bad, starts with a photographer and the resulting the image (regardless of the process - choice of cam, PP, printing and mounting, etc) that the photographer chooses to display will be judged good or bad independent of the photographer.
