To those who pretty much "dislike" too much processing...

A painting is a 100% processed art. A painter's unprocessed work is... an empty canvas.

...just wanted to throw this out there!

Nevertheless, classically one of the differentiators between an "expert" painter and less skilled dabblers is that he doesn't "overwork" his paints. You get to a point with painting just as you do with photography, where enough is enough and anything more is a muddy mess :-(

Ha ha well said, I know I've made a muddy mess of things sometimes.

True... But then again painting is not photography. So one could infer that a highly processed photograph is more closely related to painting than photography.

As long as there is any form of art expression, someone will crawl out from under a rock and disdain it offer their opinion on it.

And other control freaks supporters will attempt to denigrate and squash any alternative opinion.

Where's the "like" button when you need one?

When I enter less processed images in challenges they tend to not do as well. But I also pay attention to the photography in some of the magazines I read, and I suspect the good photography in those pages would do quite mediocre here.

I have the opportunity because of my job to visit a lot of offices and many of them have interesting artwork and photography on display. Often it is relevant to their line of business. Quite interesting to see what people have chosen to pay for to decorate their office walls. Occasionally I will see something that is heavily tonemapped and I often find it over done.

Added: Not that I don't still overdo the tonemapping a lot myself...

Obviously... OBVIOUSLY painting and photography are not the same thing. However, even though a painter does not have any starting point to express himself other than his blank canvas and paints/bruahes... "some photographers" rather do similar work with a starting point...
Editing is an art to some degree (Probably we can add "if you know what you're doing!)

Anywho, just wanted to give you something to think about :)
