I think most of us agree - exaggerations are acceptable, so long as they don't get too extreme. Used like spice, they add, so long as you don't dump them on the main dish.

Still shooting with Canon, too? Lol.

Not sure why you are getting confused on a response that seems well stated.

No, the question of "is the image any good" is not secondary to where it is posted. The question is - does that image, which can be fantastic, belong in a collection of other images that play by another set of rules - whether assumed or - as is the case for RP, listed for patrons to abide by.

We are talking simultaneously about two issues - one a gross exaggeration and the other, manipulation. I naturally am much more tolerating of exaggerations than manipulations.
