I still get calls for the images, so I can't get rid of them. Keeping all of them in a Lightroom image organizer makes it fast & easy to find an individual image, however ends up requiring lots of storage.
My travel & landscape photos make up a small portion of the total, although with the full frame D800, the size of the image database is growing fast.
I'll agree that for most users the cloud
has some advantages, however photographers tend to have large data files that they often access, making slow internet connections troublesome. I still feel more comfortable keeping a local copy of ALL my files...
