It is possible that this has veered so far off-topic that there is no getting it back on, but...
It occurred to me it's ironic and hypocritical for photographers to even be having this argument.
Photographer A and Photographer B both shoot a wedding. Photographer A charges $800 and Photographer B charges $8,000.
Photographer A's images are out of focus, improperly exposed, mundane and uninspiring. Photographer B's pictures are not only technically perfect, but they are absolutely luminous, capture the moments perfectly and positively soar.
But wait, Photographer B admits that he USED THE EXACT SAME CAMERA as Photographer A. All of the difference is in the software holding the camera.
Clearly Photographer B is immoral and unethical.
