Post Processing, How Far is too Far?

I understand people may have different views on photography, some want to create interesting images, some want to freeze a specific moment. The good thing about photography is, we all can do what we want with the amount of tools available nowadays.

That being said, I am still interested in how others view on this issue. A lot of us may know that Luminar 4 is coming out later this year, and the following Ads about the new AI Sky Replacement function keeps showing up in YouTube, which makes me wonder, is there a limit to post processing in photography?

Of coz, if you just want to create the ultimate stunning image, this tool seems very powerful. However, if your idea on photography is about freezing a moment, this may seems like "fake photo" to you. Replacing an entire subject in frame is way more than just tuning colors or saturation in the picture. It can even change the time and weather in the picture. So, my question is, what are you guys view on this kind of tools? Should there be a certain limit on photography post processing?
