Interesting conversation here. I think that if you do serious image manipulation, it should be clearly stated anywhere the picture is shown what was done to it. Dan, your picture is great. But if you were to, for example, post it somewhere, I think it might be good to at least call it a digital composite so people know it is not the way it was when you saw it. I may be a type of purest, but I would tend to think that our job as photographers is to show things the way they really were. Not the way we wished they had been.
