@ShiftingGears I think you're blowing this way out of proportion. Adding new scapes requires only a fraction of the labour compared to adding a new track to the game (especially if it's a real world one) and tying up a few guys travelling around the world to take pictures won't take away one whole new track. The fact that you don't see evidence for it does not carry all that much weight because at this point it's more than obvious you have no interest in Photo Mode whatsoever and I'm getting the impression that you want PD to adhere to your personal preferences only. However as others have pointed out there is a sizable chunk of the playerbase which enjoys Photo Mode and as I demonstrated the Discover area in the game is vibrant. Nobody is going to use all 1000 scapes just as you aren't going to drive on all 82 tracks. The large number is supposed to give you more choice and increase the chances that anybody who wants to take pictures finds a setting they like. More choice is never a bad thing, regardless of whether you're talking about scapes or tracks.
