I think you may have taken it a bit too personally.

I think the debate that you really want should be based on his initial assumption:

"If you can create things like that out of thin air it takes all of the challenge out of field work. There wasn't a blue green background behind the girl. Why not commission a painter to create whatever you want?

This is photography. This is capturing life."

Or to restate the question in my words- is photography engineering, or art ?

To answer that,  I like "both", as long as the viewer knows what you want to accomplish.
