    Is it my imagination or is it always people new to photography who think of themselves as purists and believe that only SOOC shows talent?
    It's like my teenagers who knew everything - and wondered how I managed to stay alive, knowing as little as I did.

    so there have been some amazing photos posted here, beautiful work you guys :)

    I'm wondering, how do these photos turn out so great "straight out of the camera"?
    I know its a combo of photographer/equipment,
    but more of which?
    the quality of your camera, the knowledge of the photographer?

    is my entry level slr capable of these colors in the right hands? or are my photography skills poorly lacking (IF judging by these "straight out of the camera" standards) because I don't have a better camera?

    I would say knowledge of the photographer. But you have to know the limits of your equipment as well. SOOC shots also differ depending on what file format - JPEG or RAW. JPEG's come out of the camera processed and ready for printing. You can choose in camera settings for them such as saturation, sharpness, Vibrance, etc. The color on a Jpeg will probably look different then the color on a RAW. Raw files are basically digital negatives so they need to be processed. You can't just open them and print them.

    I've seen some amazing shots from an entry level camera and their kit lenses. As long as the photographer knows what they are doing.

    there's no such thing as 'no edit'. Even straight out of a camera (I should say digital) the camera has done a conversion process and added color, contast, etc. The only difference between SOOC and deliberate editing is the Photographer who decides to edit, not leaving it to the whim of a computer inside his camera. Shooting RAW demands the photographer to do the editing.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, those that tout SOOC just don't understand how to edit properly.

    Yea, no post processing would have been a better title. Even My film image has been processed by the developing machine.

    I still don't think it's something to brag about saying "no PP" done, straight OOC or whatever. A good shot would only be better with a good polish. I firmly feel that the edit is almost as important as the composition.

    True. but it is good to see how close you can get stuff straight out of the box.

    There are lots of times when it is is impossible to get a perfect exposure but you need a decent one.
    I just was editing a shot where there was a very bright white house in the background and the people's faces were necessarily underexposed so that the house wasn't blown out.
    This shot would have been impossible to get 'correct' without PPing.

    Not editing a picture is like not wet sanding and clear coating a new paint job on a car. It just isn't finished.
