I agree, Dove....but this cheating (post processing) has caused me to quit my camera club and a lot of members were sympathetic. A recent competition winner admitted he had taken the foreground of his landscape shot in Wales, the sky in Scotland etc etc.....sorry, not for me.
In photographic circles it's forbidden to doctor nature shots....alas, witness Countryfile's calendar - a laughing hedgehog, a red squirrel posing conveniently alongside a tree stump...again, not for me.
Art? Yes, if that encompasses computer skills.
