    I havent posted here in ages, i think the last time i was completely active was in spring.

    Ive been searching flickr looking at photos i click the "interesting" button and everytime the most pictures i find when i click that are HDR's. Everywhere I look its HDR, threads, pictures, guides. I mean, most of these pictures are over processed. People think HDR's are amazing and why? Has the world become revolved around HDR? At least some still look like photographs instead of cartoons. I feel the world is relying on using programs to make their images better than bettering themselves at photography.

    End of my rant of the day.

    haha, well seems like there isnt that much that seperates pros and any guy these days. Anyone with a good amount of money in their hands and the right editing software could make good pictures.

    Haha, this is what my recent thread was about. It seems like I should be practicing my photoshop skills rather than my camera skills!

    link me to the thread I didnt see it, I was mainly focusing on the over use of hdr so I made one myself.

    And i think your totally right, with all this modern technology photoshop skills seem to be more important than camera skills.

    Photography, like all forms of art, require proficiency in three things: tools, vision, and understanding of design. You can only directly address one of these in post-processing, so if you abandon the other two, you'll never be able to achieve your best...

    This should push professionals to new levels if they want to stand out. It's good for the industry.

    No doubt they dont only need photoshop to suceed. Of course there are many levels seperating a normal photographer and a pro. Im stating that these days with digital technology its easier than it was before.

    Funny video Foques.
