Many well known photographers worked well into their 80's and some even into their 90's. 63 may be just getting started.

BTW, I am past that age.

Your age has nothing to do with your skill as a photographer.

That said, I think you choose to rely on post processing far too heavily to create your art.  While the image isn't done until it's done, it's difficult to critique you on your photography because your post is all over the place.

THAT said, if you're serving your very wealthy clients and they're happy, who cares what we think.

Thanx for your feedback Greg...You are absolutely correct...experience does enhance skill and aptitude.
Photography, with a graphic design component...is my fort'e, and enables me to tailor a product ...for commercial use.
Ok...my profile samples are,"all over the place", that connotes variety...I wouldn't have it any other way.
Thanx ... I appreciate your remarks...sincerely..Gunther
