How much post-processing is too much?
3 months ago

As the title says, how much is too much. A friend recommended me to try Perfect Photo Suite 8 as a plug in for Lightroom. I have tried some of the tools on some of my photos and while the end results look great, I feel a bit guilty as the image does not appear as how it was shoot. So how much post-processing is too much and when does a image not become a true representation of what was shot.
