I'd agree if there was no editing done, but do you adjust brightness/contrast/sh​arpening, etc. at all? To me that's still manipulation.

^This. Even going back to darkroom with film, "manipulation" is common. IMO, the key for a nature photographer is to do it subtly, not to make something that you wouldn't see in the natural world. For me, removing a twig here or there simply eliminates a distraction, but the beauty of the art is that everyone is free to express it in the way they see fit.

Ye I agree with you. I always try to make everything in the shooting situlation. But I do sharpen images a bit for printing.


You are what you eat - I dont remember eating a photographer.
