    You could say the same about much of what Petapixel publishes. I finally took it off of my RSS feed.

    Why aren't you all busy in your darkrooms, instead of judging petapixel memes? I'm serious.

    What’s the point of 99% of the street photography we see? People walking up and down a street.

    That about sums up my thoughts as well. I chuckled and can see nothing of harm here. We can get a bit hung up on the "faux" nature of pictures at times

    When my children became teenagers and learned about being rational and logical, I told them that they had to do things that were rational and logical until they became adults. Then they could be like everyone else.

    Clickbait from petapixel.

    It's money driven: having more clicks means they can get more money from advertisers: "Look at all the people who visit our site!"
