Acquiring an image has become very easy, composition and other things still require knowledge and experience.

When I am working, capturing the best images of the symphony orchestra or humpback whales, there is nothing easy about it. It takes concentration and timing no matter how fancy the camera.

Folks probably asked the same question 70 years ago when 35mm SLRs really began replacing speedgraphics, 4 x 5s and 8 x 10s in large numbers.

It will still boil down to making a number of decisions about an image beyond what system the photographer is using.

If you're not using AI, you still have to get to the location where the image can be captured. You also have to have the skill to get the timing right. The camera can get the exposure and color balance, but not the composition. Some things are still up to the photographer.

You had beautiful soft lighting, which goes a long way towards successful SOOC.

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ for the capture -- but as good as the technology has become, it's still the skill of the photographer that makes the capture. Skill =~ composition, choice of camera modes (aperture vs shutter speed), choice of subject in environment.

I am just curious. You said "untouched," and yet each of the five has a different pixel size. So, they were at least cropped. Right? --Richard

I love the amazing capabilities of modern mirrorless cameras. Photography has become easier, good photography has not. Lots of people are taking lots of mediocre shots these days. Good photography still takes skill, creativity, time, patience, and persistence, but it clearly also benefits from great camera equipment.
