Initially dont really wanna be involved in this, but i think i have to say something.
IMHO, i think that to want to critique a person's work, an individual must have already attained a certain level of skills in the field he is in.
Just like in photography, i feel, and only persoanlly feel, that if i were to want to critique a master's work, i would want to be at the same level as the master first, if not, whatever i say will, i think, be treated as rubbish.
Most of the photographers here, i think, are still amatuers and not really ready to be talking about works that have far surpressed theirs. I think it would just hinder their development in learning photography.
Ex, i think you are still a brave soul to bring this topic up, but really, CS might not be the forum. Basically, you are like talking about digital vs film here. Just as dangerous.
Just my 2 cents worth.
