    There is very little that can be done digitally that wasn't done first analog. A couple of exceptions are highly undesirable as far as I am concerned: Over sharpening and over saturation of color.

    I wouldn’t say very little. Extreme macro photography (requiring eg focus stacking, etc) and sport journalism (requiring very fast shutter speeds) are just two examples, but there’s many other.

    I get your point and I agree for the most but there are certainly many domains where digital is better suited. There’s plenty where that’s not the case but we shouldn’t exaggerate.
