From now on, I refuse to use the words manipulation or alteration or futzin’ or any other pejorative words photographers (and critics) want to come up with to describe digital processing. I’ll use interpretation because that’s what it really is!

Haterras Island, Outer Banks of North Carolina

    Excellent, I love the idea of using the word “interpretation!” That gets the point across perfectly.

    Amen, Richard! I couldn’t agree with you more. We’re artists, not photojournalists. Thanks for taking a stand.

    Interpretation, seems to fit perfectly!

    But futzin is so much more ghetto.

    Great image, Richard.
