    None of those images were processed except for cropping the river scene.
    They are the medium sized jpegs produced by the camera. I tend to capture
    both RAW and jpeg with all my shots.

    You're braver than me. I use RAW only, which means everything has to be
    processed after downloading. The Oly lets me process raw in-camera, I
    only use that when I'm overseas away from my normal setup. But
    off-camera jpgs are just not my cuppa: very few cameras have jpg
    processing that I like. Yours though looked very nice: not excessively
    contrasty or saturated and yet still very sharp and with definitely a

    Processing raw is part and parcel of digital work, nothing wrong with
    it. What I object to is extensive changes like splicing-in backgrounds
    and splicing images into others - for example, moon images into
    moonshine shots. That ceases to be photography and starts to be image
    making. Nothing wrong with it - just let's not call it photography.

    is my latest foray into processing photos. Not sure it falls into
    photography but given it's done by stitching of unmodified images as
    opposed to changing them with others, I suppose I can still call it
    photography. Taken in pano mode with a Oly EM5 and CZ50/1.4 mounted on a
    Nikon adapter, stitched with Microsoft ICE. That's a downressed version
    - original is in excess of 27000pixels across.

    came out off a D200, with only some Focus Magic sharpening and slight
    curve adjust added with Capture NX2. Both taken with a Sigma DG EX
    ApoMacro180/3.5, on a monopod.

    Hey, I'm not knocking processing.
    Everyone takes a good shot now and then. Whether or not anyone dislikes my
    images does not really bother me. I take them mainly as a record of how I
    perceive the environment at a particular moment. Mostly, I am not satisfied
    with the outcomes.
    I didn't bother to process the RAW copies of the images as the jpegs were
    adequate for purpose.
    Those examples of mine were taken with a Canon 30D. Two with the 40mm 2.8
    and the river scene with a Sigma 10-20mm zoom.
