Re: Storm brewing on Philippine coral island
On a technical level digital photography has come a long, long way in 12 years, yet from a photographic and artistic point of veiw very little has changed. In fact, electronic display and sharing of pictures, be it on forums like this, facebook, ipad, TV screens etc. rather than traditional prints is far more predominant today than it was back then, so paradoxically "only" 2.5mp is actually now less of an issue in practice. Quite ironic given the state of today's pixel race and it really does make you question it's relevance.
Regarding the picture itself, it's a timeless image which splendidly captures the mood. That's what great photography is all about and in many ways the camera used is irrelevant.
A photograph is more than a record of what you see - it's a window to your soul
