Well, BD, I do appreciate your intrusion into this tread.  The fellow in
question is making a solid living at production and item photography and
does not have to sponge off his wife's rather lucrative pastry shop.

In other words, the critics he responds to are the folks who pay his tab
and a couple of other greats (Mike is close friends with, for instance,
Ernst Wildi as he was with the late Sal Di Maco and is a noted scholar of
Capa's work.)

And, BD, don't you be saying anything bad about another of my clients, Bob
Shell.  Be nice!
