"Technically, maybe. Artistically, I suspect not" Well, I meant technically of course although I suppose that it could be argued that better presentation is more readily available to the masses with newer technology and if so that would encompass both the technical and arguably stray into the artistic also as with new technology it may be easier to produce an end result that better, more accurately, more consistently and arguably more easily displays your art. Maybe new art will develop using the new technology? Art that couldn't exist without it? Could the technical aspects of photography be compared to typing? Years ago people used typewriters and not everyone could produce a well presented end product but now in these modern times pretty much anyone can produce a well presented document free of tipex'd out mistakes and alignment problems. In photography these days almost anyone can take a reasonably well exposed shot and make a reasonable looking print. That has to help with the expression and display of their art too I think. Speaking for myself, my own photography has improved since I went digital, for several reasons.
