Artistic statement or just post processing frenzy?

Re: Artistic statement or just post processing frenzy?

I like to think that the news / documentary genres are quite a small part of the art of photography, which is after all, "drawing/painting with light". Within the news/documentary genre, making a true representation of life is paramount. New/documentary photographers must have a pretty tough time treading the line between arresting images and misleading imagery. Outside of that genre (happily where I operate) I think of photography as art.

Guess you know I lilke image 2 a lot and don't think there's anything wrong with it so long as you don't pass it off as a close representation of reality!
