Well seems like the discussed to death topics still does manage to generate very enthusiatic response and very prominent splitting of camps.
I like the analogy given by wkteoh and seconded by vickee and i will give my 2 cts worth on that.
PP is like makeup, is really as simple as that.
For hardcore old schoolers who are terribly resistant to PP, or for newbies who believe that PP epitomize the destruction of good old photography technique. Just ask a lady about makeup.
1) To the lady who fortunately do not need to apply makeup on a regular basis, she is probably lazy, but chances are when it matters, she will still apply makeup.
2) To the lady who swears by makeup, she will feel sick and insecure without her makeup to the point of she have to do make up even if she is going downstairs to buy char kway teow. This is just a state of mind and does not necessarily means she have great makeup skills (i have seen severely negetive examples)
3) To the lady who bo chap makeup, means she do not care how she looks and she dunno makeup (drag her for a makeover, the improvement factor to her aesthetics is probably going to be many folds)
Makeup is here to stay and will garner many more a female fans and males too, heck they are starting younger too. If done correctly, its about enhancing looks in day to day at the least and bout showing you care for important events u attend like weddings, functions even interviews.
To those that hate makeup, i request for you to understand what it is, what it can do and how ppl sometimes abuse it. You can still choose not to put on makeup but i do not think you can say that make up will not enhance the outlook of a lady.
Which is what it is all about isn't it?
Just my 2cts worth.
