I'm not really sure I agree fully.

1) agree - unless you are there to just take photos :D (my 2 attendances at the maths Christmas party was just to take photographs for the people doing maths - I'm NOT a party person - without the little photo task I wouldn't have gone there)

2) Depends on the food - if you do have a meal that is set up rather lovely it can be worth an image - even if only for the memory - however I agree that most food won't make a good photograph

3) Depends on how you shoot it - scenery can be nice - but it needs to be a "Bit different" from what everybody gets.

4) I think people underestimate the power of some technology - I actually used my mobile for images at a Jean Michelle Jarre concert - yes, they are only for me, and only for memories, yes they are 2MP, and obviously a point and shoot would be better (but I don't have one) and I don't think they would have liked an SLR - but still, you can get surprisingly good results (just keep of the video ;))

5) can't comment

6) Again - if people put in some artistic work with it it might work out very well - as long as it's not a snapshot

7) Definitely true :) (although I'll admit I've not seen many mirror images - I do know a mirror wipes out a fair amount of image quality)

So am I missing the point of that link? Maybe...

Being a car guy and having friends that are even more "car guy" I can't stand to see regular shots of their vehicles. Unless it is done in some interesting/artistic manner I really don't want to see a regular Autotrader quality portrait of their mid-90s winter beater...
