Re: A different analogy

Your analogy is highly flawed: when you listen to music, you're listening to the completed product of the artists involved. Post-processing is more like studio production; the photographer takes the image (performs the music), and uses Lightroom, Photoshop, etc. to refine the finished product (the recording studio).

How you view another photographers work is a better comparison to what you're implying. Like an audiophile, the viewer can bring superior equipment to the experience by using a large, hi-rez, well-calibrated monitor. And one could view a platform like Instagram or Flickr as we would a radio station. I realize, however, that this does not sufficiently diminish the role of computer post-processing, which seems to be your real intention here.
