I don't think anyone's bitching about anything. I'm just pointing out that (NOT you by the way) that some who say, "Oh look what my 1D X can do!", or "Wow, the 5D Mark 3 is awesome!" and then post photos, those photos have some to do with the camera of course, but a good majority of it due to post-processing. I guess personally I want to see as little-processed (my own word) photos as I can, so that I can get an accurate respresentation of the actual photography going on. I"m personally not interested in seeing a photo that has been heavily processed in photoshop. It's just not me, sorry. I am in NO WAY claiming to be an artist. I respect professionals who are great at the photography and art. Yes, I do some HDR and ME work myself. It's fun! But when people share photos, especially on forums, the photos are going to be their best work, in-camera and post-processed. The post-processing part just doesn't interest me. I think the photos are aesthetically pleasing, sure. But it's more impressive to me at least to see a great photo that hasn't been processed much, if at all.
If you are a pro of course, doing weddings, sports, you HAVE to do it. I HAVE to do it. Doesn't make it more interesting to me though.
And yeah, sorry, guess I can't let go of the old-school film days
Oh Kodachrome slide film...................
