Fascinating photo.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
Photography for me has always been a form of art, now in the digital era there is a greater flexibility to express the vision. Traditional artists have always had the luxury to play with colour, lines, adding and removing subjects. I believe this is equally applicable in photography. At the end of the day the photograph still needs to be taken and it is rarely possible to turn a bad photo into a great image through digital manipulation. The trick is spotting, composing then taking the shot in the first place.

A good point, but anyone who likes doing really heavy stuff to pics, needs to buy paint and canvas and do it the right way! Digital art is tedious mostly, a few good ones though
I supposed it all depends on what you would class as heavily processed. All I did was blur th background and change the colour of the splash. To me that is not heavy processing. I love taking photographs, I believe I have the "eye", although what I see and what comes out in the final process, isn't often the same. I do not like to paint on canvas, simple because I have tried it, and frankly my 7yr old son can do better
