I was fortunate enough to travel to Las Vegas on business last week and, while I was there, took a quick look inside one of Peter's very expensive stores. Being a member of the proletariat, obviously I didn't buy any of his work.

I remembered that there is a lot of controversy in the photography community around his work.

I am not knowledgeable enough to know how "original" his work is, but I know there has been some controversy around whether certain images are composite, how much PP is reasonable, and the relative merits of his extraordinary ability to self-promote.

That said his images certainly are striking.

Thoughts?

I sometimes think the general direction of conversation on DPReview lends more toward the technical and less toward the art of photography.

Well, kinda. Most of the discussion on DPR is geeky club stuff that leans towards specs.

But, yeah, art is not a strong suit around here.
