I wonder if maybe there are limits for some people? This is going to sound like I’m excusing bad photography (or at least selling it), but I’m not. Rather, well, there are people in the world who are teachers for elementary school who are completely unable to spell (I know one). They still keep correcting papers (with a list of correctly spelled words for reference) and teaching, etc.
Maybe this person just started investing in PhotoShop, etc., and just hasn’t gotten very good at it yet – i.e., recent switch to electronic editing…
I guess I want to assume that if they have been in business around 15 years that they should at least be moderately proficient and instead might be misled or something.
Maybe a recent stroke?
And this is why you’ll almost never see a mean critique out of me. LOL
