ya, i dont get it, the more pixels you ram into the same size sensor the more noise at the same ISO or lower the ISO and sacrifice shutter speed
what are they thinking, just stick around 8-10 as a max, heck, my SLR is only 6, and can print large prints no problem, the only reason to go higher is if you plan on cropping alot
As for the post you JUST did- Well, at times, editing like the one time I did it, it can be an art... bringing the feel out more. But the photos should be great just from the camera... (Vacations and such you might want to tweak the photos a bit- especially when they were very rushed...) So um.... Yea? If the photographer uses photoshop all the time, but still has a great eye, Id say they'd be photographers.
Stuff like THIS is graphic design AND photography. I LOVE this guys work- I think I am going to try to do a couple of those...
