GULP! You got me there, and fairly, too. I do apologize for my hasty use of the word 'pictorialist' in a sense that is really wholly incorrect. I have no one to blame but David Lyga.
According to that mighty font of 'knowledge', Wikipedia, I abstract the following (my italics):
"...in general it refers to a style in which the photographer has somehow manipulated what would otherwise be a straightforward photograph as a means of "creating" an image rather than simply recording it."
As dubious as Wikipedia can be, in this case its definition does have merit. Thank you for leading me off the wrong road. I do hate to be wrong but, more so, I do like to be corrected from such infamy.
Ansel Adams was primarily a realist. - David Lyga
