    This is especially true for me, I find myself very attracted to glass of yesteryears - exceptionally good built and optics! Oh and yes, B&W film!

    I started off using film. Suddenly when I switch to digital, I discovered everybody uses PP. I was somewhat left behind. The only dinosaur who refuses to use PP. Hehe...today I use PP to cheat a bit so that my photos can match my "Ta Ker" here.

    (Apart from the quality of the photo and also post processing too)
    Yes... I had never satisfied with my pictures.

    No really a need at this moment. But if my exposure or white balance screw up, then I will do raw conversion.

    Yes... I used to have problems with ISO100 pixel view with 40D. Now I started to complain on 5DII also as I found the old 1DsIII is better at pixel quality. It is very minor... but I can see it.

    Same for me. Post-process limited to minor changes eg. cropping and contrast/colour adjustment.

    I radically altered a picture element once - to remove an ugly piece of raffia that was running down the middle of the frame and ruining the composition - but after doing it I felt very dirty

    Maybe people who started photography in the purely digital era don't have that feeling?

    Initially yes, it grew so bad that it feels pain to watch movies sometime when you mind is having problem with the movie and my imaginary 3 * 3 frame. But I am quite cured of the syndrome nowadays. It only appear once recently during lunch when I decided to move the dishes infront of me to fix the rule of third.

    One day, I may even start using Photoshop

By then, the BBB long gone and i realise it's a 'good to have and not a must to have'.
    i'm still deciding on either a tamron 70-300mm or a sigma 70-300mm.. hahah....

    I try to stay as true to photography as I can so I only use software to crop a little, adjust S curve a little, and tilt a little. I try not to change the composition or adjust the contrast till it looks completely different. I find that my joy is in using the camera to capture and not using the computer to edit.

    its now becoming "stock or to PP" thread...

    for me, just go with the flow of technology... in the 1st place, you must have a good photo to PP any way...

    also you will find less time for your girlfriend/wife.

    when you go on holidays, you will more time behind the view finder than to see the place itself.

    if u become selective and post only ur better shots it is already a big step forward.

    actually by the time u get so critical about ur own works u probably find more enjoyment in shooting than spending more on equipments thinking it is the equipment's fault for bad photos.

    My wife has commented (not complained yet!) that I now treat my camera better than treating her. When it rains, I quickly rush to protect my gear while leaving her subject to the elements

    You just did the wrong measure for the problem....

    You should ask your wife follow you and help out in protecting the gears. 2 hands are better than 1.

    There was once during poly when I just brought a new "lens of the yesterday" and rush off for test. Throughout the whole freaking test, I can only think of how my new lens will perform...

    Very easy to start going into PP when tons of people are sharing so many beautiful pictures that have some form of post-processing done. But like some have mentioned, it's fine to touch up, but to drastically change the photo using PP, probably should better off working on photography technique. Sometimes I think I spend too much time reading and looking at photos as well as stuff relating to equipment as opposed to getting outside and taking photos. And because I keep reading about all those wonderful equipment that everyone's using, I feel tempted to invest in them. It's like a sinkhole haha.
