Obviously film could be doctored. Dog do not sit at tables and play poker. And yes, a few gifted souls labored for hour to produce the perfect print. Today those changes take a few minutes on mouse and keyboard. But film is film and digital is digital. Each is unique in its own way. To compare the results of silver compounds interacting with light photons, to inks deposited on paper, is like comparing apple to oranges or one type of wine to another. There is absolutely no reason to choose one over the other, when one can enjoy both. I love fly fishing but I still bobber fish at times. I love canoeing but a bass boat come in handy once in a while. I like film because I enjoy the touchy feely diddling with mechanical things and it feels more natural to me. But I will admit, digital is quicker and easier and definitely the future of photography. Choose what is best for you.
