Re: Sometimes it does. See my post above. And this link

Your example is much too much complex with what appears to be an army of skilled artists redefining the model's image. Perhaps the exaggeration was intentional.. The OP was insinuating that the Pulitzer Prize winner's photo was less respected because there was some PP to his photo. Would the photo have had more credibility because they managed to pull off a nifty HDR effect with an extremely expensive lens that could be easily done with PS in PP?

How do you define PP? Your argument of contrast is weak, this is "real" post processing:

Does post processing render a photo less respected than one which produced the same result using front of sensor processing such as a filter or a lens which delivers incredible contrast?
