Does it really make a difference? Photo journalism is different than photo art. The photographer is the artist. Isn't it their choice to choose how their subject is presented?

I'm really not trying to be argumentative. All images are a representation of what we, as the capturer, wants the viewer to see. Perception is reality.

I agree the photographer is the artist. It makes no difference to me how people present their work! I'm just curious as I'm wondering if I need to put a lot of emphasis on PP when it comes to macro to get desired results. Was in no way trying to insult people!

No, you didn't come across as being insulting. :) I can tell you that pp is the second half of digital photography. Capture is HUGE but pp can make or break a photo.

Still trying to get used to this lens...In Macro it needs so much light- just an example the frost was on the window & outside was very bright out & no matter what settings I had it on they still seemed pretty dark? I adjusted the one while editing but the others,very little if any at all. I like to take water splash pictures & thought this lens would be good but no matter how much light I have on it the shutter doesn't open fast enough to capture it clearly. Any suggestions?

One of the first shots with this lens since I got it last week. My wife actually took this one during an engagement shoot last weekend. I'm excited to explore the possibilities with this lens.
