How to Win a Photography Argument on DPReview
7

There are two ways to win arguments on DPReview:

Method 1: Don’t Argue. This is the best way to win.

Method 2: Post a photograph which meets three criteria:

a) A good photograph. Not a test shot or example. It has to be a good photograph. It doesn’t need to be great, although that never hurts.

b) Shot by you: It can’t be shot by someone else.

c) Ilustrates the point you’re trying to make, and you explain how it illustrates your point.

Every time someone’s done this, they’ve convinced me. Those who never post photos of their work are not terribly convincing.

PS: If you want to win the argument that Camera Brand A is better than Camera Brand B, only Method A will work.
