The article reinforces some old arguments. I found the last paragraphs of interest, it seems the pendulum is swinging back and some people are starting to mistrust the subtle manipulations done with PS.
One of the arguments for the "craft" vs "art" was that it is craft because we merely "copy" whst is there. Yet it seems to me that people are starting to say "well sure, anybody can get those colors/contrast given enough time in the computer."
Seems to me this is part of the continuing debate between analog vs digital.
