    As a card-carrying non-pro who doesn't know from exotic lab effects, I read with dismay the snarky comment about "shopped image". Sometimes a thing of beauty is worth appreciating for itself no matter if "shopped". Ever hear of Ansel Adams?

    Don't worry. Noons is probably just upset because he can't shoot or shop.

    Something more akin to photography instead of image making through
    Photoshop? Yes, particularly when someone calls them "photos".
    If they just called them images, then fine with me.

    When you can show ONE image of yours, in whatever condition, you can
    comment.

    Sure. Then why call it a photo? It is not.
    See first line.

    Yes. Have you? Ever heard of him using photoshop?

    Hey stupid, Ansell Adams did post processing. That's what photoshop does.

    Ansel Adams did post-processing of real photos.
    That is NOT what Photoshop does, although some MAY chose to do that.
