Okay, I'm going to assume that you're trolling, because the only reasonable explanation is that you're completely daft.

Only amateurs use tripods. I only shoot handheld regardless of shutter speed.

Yes, I think we pretty much know you can snap a picture and not do any tonal edits in post. Now can you please provide the documentation that proves all landscape professionals never need to recover shadow details? That only amateurs do that?

You might not believe in highlight and shadow recovery, but you're expert at "dodging" the question. :lol:

I'm still waiting for a "professional" level shot. :lol:

I don't think so. It looks nice. I think dave's work looks nice. It has that appearance of one who is skilled at the camera but incapable at the computer, but nice nonetheless.

In my view skill with the camera is indeed critical. One must have mastery over their gear. But, that's half the effort. Skill and mastery is needed in post as well. The refusal to take it further in post is not the mark of a professional. Rather it's the mark of a lazy artist with limited vision and skill. Great photography is not an either/or scenario regarding in-camera vs. post. It's both. A strong effort is needed in both areas.

That's just my view - I'm not going to give it that astonishingly arrogant flourish that dave did by making it a statement of absolute fact; it's purely my own opinion. I'm fine with dave having a different opinion. What I'm not fine with, is when opinions are made in an absolute sense.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I am booking for 2015 field shoots and post-processing workshops. Mods - feel free to delete if this is the wrong forum.

Ahhh, the worn out pilings in the water shot spiced up with an over saturated sunset. Nice.

Thanks for the permission. I chose another option.

His whites are white, his blacks are black, and his grays are gray. What more needs to be said?

And your reds are overcooked. Take them out of the oven. Just as bad as shall we say...HDR
