What I mean by 'true image' is one that has not been digitally enhanced such that it is beyond anything remotely resembling reality. A slightly different shade of blue from one film to another is the norm. just as people having differing eye sight is normal.
But an image that has been so heavily altered that it does not even come close to reality is, for me, misleading and not appropriate in this context.
What Mother Nature gives us, needs no camera trickery for me. I admire professional photographers and enjoy seeing their photos. A lot of that skill for some photographers is getting across the 'trueness' that reflects what most of us see. Not a fake image of what one may think the viewer wants to see.
