Digital photography versus film, I'll take digital every time.

Dingle-Peninsula-IrelandDingle-Peninsula-Ireland I often hear photographers waxing on about how they miss film, and that they just can't get the same feel out of their imagery as they could in the days of old.  I'm not in that camp at all.  

What I do love is the ability to scan my old files, (spent two hours spotting out the dust, an inherient quality of film) then enhancing the photograph with filter effects in Photoshop CC.  This image was captured on the western shores of Ireland in 1996,  then using Adobe Photoshop CC's blur tilt shift filter and a Topaz plug-in, I was able to create the illusion of an image captured with a tilt-shift lens.  

The thought process I follow is that digital capture allows me to first photograph the image in a resolution and dynamic range that film never possessed,  then thru a variety of post production processes create any effect I choose.  It's just another tool in my camera bag.
