Re: Photo-manipulations vs. photography

But all photographs are "doctored" either in camera, which applies the user's JPEG settings (which can now include HDR, multiple exposures to increase resolution, shadow boosting etc etc) or by post processing from RAW. I process photos by selectively adjusting areas to, say, lift shadows. I may tweak light balance to make the photo look more like I remembered the scene to be. This is before any cloning to remove errant TV arials etc. I did all thiis in the darkroom years ago, digital merely makes it easier. Where you draw the line between "photograph" and "digital art" is a personal decision.

Which of course makes life difficult for photo hosting sites, photographic competition judges and newspaper editors
