[soapbox]As for your definition of "photography," with all due respect it lies much closer to the preference of middle-america snapshooters with their pop and drop (shoot their print film and leave at the retail lab) than it does to the roots of photography, where the darkroom work was extensive and vital in turning the initial capture onto silver into a viewable print. Post-processing has always been an important part of photography. [/soapbox]
