I'm not sure where it should be presented but I think digital photo manipulations should not be called photographs.

There needs to be labelling or definition in the media and among photographers of what is a pure photograph and what manipulation is allowed( cropping, burning/dodging,etc) to keep it as a photograph.

Digital photo manipulations should then be labelled as photo/illustrations or some other name so that there will be no confusion on which is which.

I will start a new subject on this and see what others think.
