For me the answer is quite simple. I can appreciate both "forms" of photography, provided one important fact is included. Has the image been altered in any significant way from the original image? By significant, I mean more than simple exposure, color correction, or sharpening. Changing colors, adding logos, creating motion, adding clouds, removing more than dust or a stray beer can are fine as long as those changes are noted. While photos can be artistic, in our hobby they often document history that needs to be preserved. I have been to hundreds of slide shows and have seen probably half a million slides, and can probably count on one hand the number of altered images. What you see is what you get, good or bad. Digital images have changed that. It is relatively easy to make major changes to an image, good or bad as well. I just want to know.....
