    im a starting beginner with a nikon d40 had my camera for a good month now almost 2 .. i practice with it but i need ur guys c/c about this .. i like original because when u take a picture with manual settings and its how u like and it looks good then theres no point in editing it .. i mean whats the point of getting a dslr if ur gonna edit it ? .. if u edit it feels like the program is making the photo nicer for u not urself ...

    Photoshop IS hardwork.
    People get paid thousands and thousands of dollars to do work in photoshop.

    You do understand that, if you aren't shooting RAW, the camera is 'editing' your shot, right? If it didn't, you would have a flat, boring, low contrast, unsharpened shot, every single time you pushed the shutter. If you are shooting RAW, the shots come out unedited, but they need to be edited to an extent if you want an interesting shot. Something to keep in mind.

    Agreed.

    But, I kind of see this guys point. If you edit the crap out of something it kind of stops being what you shot. What did you guys do when the good cameras were 35mm?

    When I use 35mm, I will edit the photo, but thats by different means. That editing is done by different apertures on the enlarger, different burn times, dodging and burning, etc. Basically the same thing as nowadays.

    Sure, if you edit it like a pre-pubescent 13 year old girl who just signed up for myspace and got a new copy of photoshop elements.

    Ok so the work and end result don't line up with each other, but it's almost parallel.
