Now, maybe i'm conservative with any "modifications" I do to the images.
But in the end, the image content is king, and by going completely hybrid for my LF color neg work, It gives me a better image overall.
And in the end, that's all that matters, to me. Sure, some over-do it, but this high-falutent sense of purity only goes so far, when your perfect pure photograph is of a damn rock and a stick or a tree.
However some of the photographs no longer reflect reality on planet Earth. That is the point of the OP. If one is offended because they also invent reality, the problem is really in them. The OP did not complain about touchups.
