Why does everyone care so much about Ken Rockwell?

I feel pretty indifferent about him.

His gallery is ok though. It's obvious his favourite colour is orange as well.

It's all over-saturated for my taste.

I just hate how he has become this final word in the world of photography but really he can be quite misleading. That and the fact that he constantly contradicts himself.

I uploaded some of my favorite shots, I'll post the links here instead of embedded pictures.

The first three are all of a bird in our garden last summer :-)

The next three are from a show room in the Globe at CERN:

All of these were shot WITHOUT a tripod, I was very happy to see they came out pretty good, considering the low light in there.

The last of the three shots from CERN kind of reminded me of the cookie monster, so I thought I'd throw this picture in aswell

And last but not least, a picture of an awesome looking candle I got from my girlfriend for christmas:

I like him for technical info on things, and his comparison shoots are decent (even if I think they look horrendously down-scaled or compressed...). For anything even vaguely subjective (lens X is better than lens Y because of Z, jpeg is soooo much better than RAW, etc.) I ignore him.

FP4+, Epson V500 with betterscanning.com glass (like 150 total! ), developed by myself.

He also states that real professionals use film, yet he is apparently the end word of digital photography somehow. I think he just has really good SEO.
