Now you've sampled soccer, it's time for cricket. Not the helter-skelter of a one day match, or twenty-twenty which is over and done with in two or three hours tops, the real thing. A five day test match, preferably rain affected so there is nothing happening (no players on the field, even) for hours (or maybe days) and the result is a drawn match in front of a crowd of dozens. Now that's a sport worth watching.
I'm with Tom Wood: “The important thing is not to have an aim, I just go out the door and, whatever’s real, I try and deal with that.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/10589764/Interview-Tom-Wood.html

Perhaps it's wiser for photographers not to show their 'working out' if they crop and clone to make their pictures? Unless that manipulation is an integral part of their general working practice - Gursky.

I thought I'd be alone in preferring the uncropped, uncloned original.
"...he wished photography weren't so easy." But, as others have said, that's just what makes it so difficult. e.g. http://www.paulgrahamarchive.com/writings_by.html (Second piece on page)

I was bearded and grumpy from an early age. Which was I couldn't see the point of autofocus so bought a Canon EF-M (rather than an EOS 1000) - with it's two dials each marked with various numbers and an 'A'. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EF-M_camera
I've tried cameras that are a pain to use. They're a pain to use. So I dont' use them for long.
"...I have to say that in terms of sharpness and 'blow-up-ability,' modern digital is better..." That's rather like saying a 4H pencil is better than a 6B because it'll take and hold a finer point for longer.
If you must post long, break it up with pictures.

Hockney can be scathing about photography, but thought provoking nonetheless, and he is always interesting about the nature of picture making. I've read A Bigger Message: Conversations with David Hockney a number of times now, and often dip into it.
I suppose I'm out of step here - when I see a photograph I look at a picture. Photographs aren't made with brushes and paint, or charcoal and paper, but pictures are. I'll carry on using cameras to make photographs as a way of making pictures.

Whenever matters like this arise regarding photographs I wonder what the reaction would be if the pictures were paintings.

Thomas Osborne has a point. I'm in the UK and pretty much all I knew about Wisconsin before this post was connected with musky fishing and Hayward. Pete Maina (among others) is famous (in musky and pike angling circles worldwide) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pete_Maina And there's http://www.freshwater-fishing.org/
