Thank you for informing them I use Photoshop.  Ive talked to the founder many times 3y3toy on how i create my images.  Here where actual expeirenced photographer accept this way of shooting!  Get off your high horse and go learn how to take photos instead of bitching like a little girl and crying to mommy!  Nobody cares what you have to say...remember that!  And thanks again for making me a contributor/moderate John-Peter!

 "Untouched" means that the actual scenery that was shot was not made by humans - no humans in sight, no pets, no human-made elements, and so on.

Untouched has nothing to do with editing in this case. Use of photoshop doesn't make an image automatically a manipulation, photographers use photoshop to correct sharpness, colors, light balance and so on - to get the most out of the RAW file which is like a digital negative with all the image info.

In modern digital photography, editing is a big part of creating a photograph. If you shoot RAW you must edit your photo. If you shoot JPEG - you allow your camera's inner software to do the automatic editing for you, including color correction, sharpness, compression, spot correction which involves automatic cloning of pixels and so on. Editing is as much a part of digital photography as negative-development is a part of analog. Even Ansel Adams created methods for editing negatives in the lab. Google it. 
Now as to whether or not it's too much - it's a matter of mastery and also a matter of opinion. That's why we vote on each photo here. Each image must have at least 3 votes to get accepted.

Happy new year to you as well :)

Thank you Alex for another same view as me!  This guy is blowing up my work with negative comments because he thinks he knows everything.  Hes way to ignorant to be an artist
