Well the "joke" was on me, because when I first got the Rebel, it was way more cemera than I knew how to use. As I have learned and advanced in my use, the Rebel has more than kept pace with my abilities. Now, as I have said before, I will continue to use the Rebel series for what I want to do as it really makes the best sense for me.
Quite frankly, IMHO, if you are going to take a photograph and then "process" it, alter it, re-shade, re-tone, smooth over it, layer it, clone in and out portions of it, the you might just as well have taken the shot with a P&S. If it takes THAT much "WORK" to get it to look right then it wasn't a very good photograph to start with, and if it WAS a good photograph, then why are you screwing with it? LOL!!
