Optimization: Right or Wrong?
"The topic of Optimization is a very emotionally charged issue. However, it does not need to be. Photography is a creative art. No one criticizes a painter and says, “those colors are not realistic”, or “that scene never looked like that.” The public, as well as photographers, seem to think that what we are creating in-camera is real. It is not. How could it be? We are recording light from a three-dimensional living, breathing world and transforming it into a two-dimensional, static representation."
