Bob, I think there will always be a need for artistic and technical skills in creating good photographs. I don’t think professionals are going to become obsolete.

But you are certainly right that it is a whole new ball game with digital imaging. Back in the day, I’d take a few shots with my AE-1 and pray that they would look decent when they came back from being developed. Cropping had to be done when you shot the photo, because there was no such thing as post-camera editing for the amateur. And you could not afford to take too many shots of the same subject, because film and processing cost money!
