What's the OMG for?

That was a perfectly legitimate reaction of the potential buyers.

Only if you approve of the validity of artificial scarcity.

If armchair artists produce better images than "real photographers", so be it :-)

same with wheelchair artists...

In my architecture photography i never changed skies, but always have to do some or more cleanup.
So i look at it and decide what is quicker?;  a real cleanup or a photoshop cleanup.

On one occasion i ended up cleaning the floor of a theatre...
in an other occasion an earial view of a square was very nice, but there were many stains because of a weekly market... took hours...

and then we have the windows...

and often the building is not ready yet, so i have to make it ready... or the photo is useless.

Why don't you post your photos so we can see them.  I bet they're great.  I post mine.  Especially the ones I've edited.  ;)

Well Alan, actually I've posted some photos in this forum.
I don't think they are "great" but this is what I do and am satisfied.
Perhaps you missed them because you were mired in the "Bear Pit" wasting the time that was given to you?   :(
Just a little joke... ;)

Speaks of the buyers and not of the photographs displayed.
I reccomend the lecture of authors like Susan Sontag or the essays by Robert Adams.
You may not agree with anything but it is food for thought

Is anyone willing to help me out by posting the things that a "real photographer" does and doesn't do? I have never come across the phrase, probably spending too much time cloning in skies ;). Ken

If you need to ask, you don't need to know ;)

"Real Photographers" don't eat quiche. That would be a beginning
