The digitalists have a process called "post-visualization". Post-visualization is the process of taking a lousy digi-snap and warping it with Photo$hop into something that does not exist in the real world with the altimate goal of destroying humanity's belief in the ability of analog photography showing truth. Hence digitalists are reality negators.
Haha, yeah I've seen a few of those impossible images. Well, everyone's gotta have a niche. Somebody's bound to come up with a Diploma in Digital Post-visualisation. Actually, hmmm, why don't I draft up a certificate and start selling diplomas on the net..
I speaking personally feel much more satisfied with work I have produced that comes out the way I envisaged it without relying on in built camera technology to do the thinking, or if I do I feel it has about as much relationship to art as painting by numbers does, and don't find in any way as edifying.

I think we touched a very interesting psychological phenomenon: "If It Costs Nothing, I Cannot Take It Seriously". People who are free from the destructive influence of this stupid (but hardwired deeply somewhere in our minds) connection - you are my heroes! Personally, I am very weak. One time, when going to a trip to Arizona, I packed a bunch of cameras and - believe it or not - forgot my dSLR. That was a blessing! I wouldn't bring a half of the *decent* images from that trip if I had my digital gear with me... Yes, this is extremely stupid, but it still works...
