No, not at all. I do not understand your term "over produced?"

These images, in the flesh, are stunning.

It is because we both are photographers, both have essentially the same
equipment, I tend to go for the jugular before viewing the images. As does
John. He will always immediately point out what he thinks are the flaws,
which get us off track to start with. But in reality, any flaws are so
insignificant, they would not be seen even by most photographers.

This is not Leica photography. It is LF photography and spending the time
necessary to be there when the light is right. Many many many trips over
many many many years.
