I am happy to answer your questions, Roger. On the "pushing" topic, I would like to see a great deal more about photography as an art form, rather than as a documentary process. Of course, someone will come and point to "Chewing Gum Bubble" in the current issue. That is a fabulous article, so out of line with mainstream AP content - but it is looking at creative photo-art in a way that is rare in AP. Don't misunderstand me - I am also interested in landscape, wildlife, travel, still-life, street and portrait photography and I do not suggest that we should ignore those topics in order to concentrate on less traditional genres. But I would like, as I said, to see the current change in AP's outlook accelerating a bit. That would also deal with your "more progressive" question. On the "Final Analysis" question, I rarely find the photographs you use to be particularly illustrative of the narrative you provide. An exception, as I already stated on another recent thread, was last week's Cristina Cassinelli study which did hit the spot. But, in that column, the selection of picture is much less important than the words you write. Just as an additional linked point, I do regret the lack of humour in AP. The "back page" feature was previously used, at least on an intermittent basis, to provide some humour and I would welcome seeing your thought-provoking epistles alternating with a less serious contribution. Eric Edit: I wrote this immediately after reading Roger's questions and had not read PaulM's subsequent post. I am interested to note that he also identifies lack of humour as an issue worth mentioning. E.
