Take a look at this site I found,...Phlearn.com.
Those guys are fun and have free stuff for all levels that anyone can enjoy.
Some of us got caught in a futile debate that hit a dead end right away filled with wasted resources.
The people watching this were either entertained or disappointed by the display.
Whatever the case might have been,.... opinions (good or bad) never hurt anyone.
I have been insulted repeatedly by all those Rockwell lovers and it seemed that their only preoccupation was coming up with quick insults.
No constructive criticism or polite suggestions,....just quick bites,.... were thrown at me.
This fervor took me somewhat by surprise and I decided to defend my position which in hindsight proved pointless.
I tried to use arguments in my so called rants and I was careful not call neither of my detractors any names or derogatory stuff, a courtesy which I was not the recipient of.
It is all good,.....It does not bother me much,.....Better people then me were devored by crowds in the past.
It is nothing new.
I did not try to say that all of Rockwell's stuff is not enjoyable to read or that there is nothing to learn on his website,... just that I was sick and tired of hearing his name as a point of reference in anything related to photography.
To me he is just another guy,....no better then anyone here,....or anywhere else,....posting his opinions,... whatever they are.
Anyone with that self professed knowledge and latest high tech gear at his disposal, should indeed have better results.
His work suffers from lack of any creativity whatsoever, and that alone, for me, destroys his credibility.
In the end,...it looks likely that he initiated this discussion with the original post which is quite clever.
The person that posted that, had no more to say afterwards, which is strangely revealing.
Very good self advertising.
