  I feel bad for actual photographers these days. Almost anybody can take a great picture with a smart phone and the touch of a couple apps. The art to it is gone. – MRO, USA, With no intended disrespect to your opinion, I beg to differ. Being a photographer myself, at times I remain true to the original shot. The ones I am happiest with are the rare one that is perfect… Color, balance, contrast, perspective. When I do enhancements I always add those enhancements to the description. Art is interpretive. Art is magical and unique. Sometimes I go for months without getting that perfect angle or composition. Any one of us cam be ‘actual photographers’ because the best photo is the one taken with the camera you happen to have in your hands at that moment. Non-camera-carrying folks think we’re nuts… Until 20, 30, 40 years later when YOU are the person family & friends come to because you have the photos and those moment-in-time-memories.
