comment Comparing a6000 to a7 photos on Flickr
Sorry but I believe this cannot be answered. You may have too many things at play: better lenses, better processing, more time spent on images, more acquired photography skills, etc. You'd think these could be orthogonal but in practice they are not. If one spends more on a camera, they hopefully spend more on lenses and care more about photography, so they'll probably work harder at it.

comment How was this 360° panoramic photo taken?
Not that there anything wrong with your answer but seeing the image, I think the real issue is how to pull-off a panorama that goes under the photographer and shows no shadows. Otherwise, we've pretty much answered this general panorama question before.

comment Can work with RAW to be the next step for the development?
@u.hrybok Books and courses cover technical aspects as well as creative ones. There are plenty to learn I would say, Brian Peterson's Understanding Exposure to get better at metering for example. You can learn how to set WB so that you do not have to guess and correct in post. Same with brightness and contrast. Really RAW gives you more latitude to do this but if you don't understand how that is of no help you will simply have more rope to hang yourself as they say.

Does that mean you are always on the laptop? And therefore cannot browse your catalog from your desktop? It's kind of backwards from the way I'd like to work :(

In my case, the images and library are on different disks. The images are on a read-only mounted SSD and the catalog is on a read-write one. They could not be on the same for those permissions but there is no penalty for accessing the originals, so I think it would fall into the same argument as the one in your third paragraph or did I miss something?

Interesting but this answer brings out much more questions! I just got my first own laptop and so I've been wondering on how to integrate in my workflow. In your case, where is/are your catalog(s)? If they are more than one, how to do you keep them in sync?
