    I love reading this guy's page.

    He's ranting about the D3x price again and in the middle of his drivel I find the following quote "I doubt anyone buys a digital Nikon without checking here first."

    That's right Ken, every single person in the world checks your page first before buying a Nikon. I know I did.

    Gotta hand it to that guy, he's either a genius on purpose or accident.

    DON'T DO IT! I heard of another disbeliever who looked directly at one of Ken's photographs and he turned into a column of salt. truf!

    His pages have some good info :dunno:

    But he does have a tendency to say stupid things... and I never saw that quote you posted before, that's just a tad egotistical of him.

    dont bother. He says 1/2 the shit he does just to collect clicks.

    Driving traffic to his site is his business plan. The more outrageous he is, the more you fall into his plan.

    He is to the photography world as Chuck Norris is to the Karate and sweet mustache world.

    Take your lens cap off, buy a scanner, step into the new millenium, and start posting *your* pictures. :slap:

    Ken Rockwell does not need a laptop, he can do everything from his wife's iPod Touch. :hsugh:

    Seriously? :ugh:

    You don't post pics, when you do its absolutely of nothing, you comment on everything an anything, and you post about what you buy... but no site, no flickr, no nothing. Come on man, how can anyone take you seriously if all you do is put up useless posts?

    You're becoming like slimeball... he tried selling shit to his family and got known for that. You're becoming known for the guy that forgot to take off his lens cap and never posts anything worth a shit. You sure do offer a lot of technical advice though. Kinda like Ken Rockwell. :hsugh: film cameras are great and all, but at least buy a digital point and shoot for fuck sake.

    You've posted on TPF, and some here. I've seen your work and I'm sure others have too. You also don't post about everything and anything. It'd be different if you just commented and that's it... but you don't.

    hey now i wasnt trying to be critical. i was saying grain is a function of developing. i was not saying you did it wrong! if you like it thats all that matters! i never said i didnt like your pics

    contrast=push-pull
    tonality=filters
    grain=developing

    im sorry if you took it the wrong way, i have that problem a lot.
