I know I have the eye. Luckily, I do have decent Photoshop skills. My wall is the moeny to invest in a camera
While agree with your premise that current cameras can allow a mediocre photographer to produce quite acceptable results (after all, isn't that really the underlying marketing strategy behind all the bells and whistles), I can't agree with your "money barrier" arguement.
There are a number of photographers here producing quality results with equipment well over 20 years old, and could be picked up for a song in any 2nd hand shop. If you have the eye and the PS
skills, the camera should not be an obstacle.
Easy for me to talk, now I have Canon's latest, but can I submit this shot for your consideration -

Taken on a Canon AT1 using a bargain basement Osawa 300mm (no, I've never seen that brand since either
) and scanned from slide on the original HP
SmartScan. Yes, it is a bit soft, though I think I could improve that with my current sharpening techniques.
