Re: not an Oly in sight but ....

Would you like to know why I was not successful with selling my printed landscape photos?
I made them too nature looking; the way I thought they should be but the people wanted the more vivid, saturated glossy colours

I still do not real like the real vivid, saturated glossy colours we often see, however they are the pictures people seem to prefer and pay for; and sometimes they pay a lot of $$

so far from reality however Ken has become a very rich person

this is so over the top; but I would love to have all those letters after my name; not to mention his bank account .... even 1/4 of bank account. He now flies the world doing the photos for the inflight quantas magazine

They all win the big awards with vivid, saturated glossy colours
vivid, saturated glossy colour photos get more hits on G+/flickr

Just tossing some thoughts in folks.
I listened the peter many years ago when he wowed us with his dark room skills. I then learnt much of my PS/LR stuff from his books and magazines. He is one of a kind.
