    Thanks.
    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
    "mood".

    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.

    This:

    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.

    These:

    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.
