Most published photos are 'tweaked' to enhance them, improve clarity etc - have a look at the Camera Corner thread and see some of the tweaks on there. David K will be able to explain how more clearly than I can. I did my photographic training in the days of dark rooms and developer.
People used to think that photographs had veracity as opposed to paintings ... but there is no 'truth' ... photographs are created images just like paintings.
However, there are sometimes photos that are 'over tweaked' and looking at the photo on page 13 it does look to me as if the blues have been 'turned up' a fraction too much.
