Or so says Florida Nature Photagrapher in his post (linked below) responding to my retouch of the OP's photo (per her invitation). Immediately following his assertion are my 2 separate responses.


For those who don't click through to the link I didn't say that using PhotoShop is cheating.

In reworking a photo a new background was added that was not present when the photograph was taken and I responded to that with the comment "To me that is cheating".

My post was an attempt to generate friendly discussion on the limits we as photographers should set when enhancing a photograph.

I am very new to this craft and I am trying to establish for myself what is and is not reasonable. I won't be able to do that without input from folks like you.

I make my best effort to generate discussion without offending anyone. In this case I clearly failed. I regret the poor use of my communication skills. I do not regret my attempt to gain perspective from the views of others.

P.S. Lawrence, I'm a he.
