I have seen photography change so much in the last ten years. There is a shitload of digital manipulation going on. It has made the art more like graphic arts.

The composition can't be faked, and there are some nice compositions here. Now who doesn't shop their photos?

Points for those who just crop or clone stamp out some dust.

Great shot Vic

Evergreen run at Solitude, Utah

If I had Photoshop I'd use it. It's a great program. Digital has made most photographers lazy, but I hated waiting for my film to develope only to find I was overexposed on all my shots. Now you can shoot and see the image instantly. You know right away if it is good or not.

Good Question...

Base, you have a point.
Though even with film there is always some post processing needed and done (think Ansel) but I'm glad to leave the chemicals behind. I use Lightroom mostly and work hard to do as little as possible. It does bug me to see some images pumped up so much though. One needs to work with the available light rather than create that light IMHO.

Having said that, image manipulation can be pretty darn cool. Just check some of Peter H's work for example.
I think though that as long as one is honest about their work there is room for all of it.
