I am sure that given the equipment, time, money, and staked out subjects, and skillfull pic adjustment a la picsells. anyone could do the same. Totally cold, no involvement. Oh nice, oh thats nice. Toss it away
Why don't they do something Audobons 100 best photographs by people who work for a living, and have never published a photo for money before. SWEAR you would get better pics, Just go to Surfbirds.com and look through the ameteur pics. Way, way better.Some true stunners. "Tree sparow on corn head" Mrs Hangus MeCoatup, Chipping Sodbury" Just a face in the crowd.
