I really have some things I'd like to say about this topic, but at this point, I think that everything I said would be quoted and picked apart. And that counter-points would be made to every one of my points. I really don't feel like having my words picked apart, and having my statements challenged . . . so I'm going to pass. Sometimes I'm up to those debates, but there's already been far too much of that in this particular thread. Enough is enough! It's a shame that this thread is being ruined because someone just can't help but to pick apart and scrutinize everything that people have to say. If this person would tell us that he's finished posting to this thread, then maybe I would feel up to contributing again. I think we'd all breathe a sigh of relief!
Tom I doubt he is done and it's sad because I always enjoy reading your thoughtful and insightful posts. As well as sjones, OhLook and many others. Sad that one can effect so many others. But everyone has an opinion but then again some opinions should hold much more value than others.
I know apples and oranges kinda but kinda not when it comes to credibility . A grade school drop out that never mastered the basics of math might have an opinion about physics but in my mind Einstein's opinions about physics should hold a lot more weight. But thats me.
Szarkowski or some guy on a photo forum.... AHHHH I donno. Hard to choose
