As I've stated, the problem it is the many photographers claim that heavy post-processing results closely resemble what their eyes perceived. I will still back my argument that the "standard picture style" on my Canon cameras looks very much like what my own optical nerves process. Slightly less DR? Yes. I sure as heck don't see cartoons, artifacts, or halos when I'm out hiking though.

They missed your point. Or perhaps they got your point and didn't like it.

And some of them might have some interesting rations tucked into their packs when they go hiking!

Loved your sunset; really excellent picture.

Thanks Henry, I'm glad at least a few people "get" my opinion.

For what it's worth, I think any form of post-processing is fair game so long as the editor isn't trying to sell everything as "true to the human eye".  I have come across that often on forums and in Facebook photo sharing groups.
