Throwing my 'two bits' in from Central India, a small town called Sanchi.

It seems as if people's thinking is being determined by what we 'could' do in the B&W darkroom - burn, dodge, choose different grades of paper for contrast, etc.

Photo editing tools have opened a new world for creating an image that we (personally) like. If I see a scene that I perceive as a potentially wonderful shot, except for an intruding TV antenna, I now have two alternatives instead of one.

In the old days I could make arrangements (pay) to have the antenna removed so that I could make the shot.

Today I can take the shot and remove the antenna at no cost to me or with no waste of time.

What is the difference?

Is photography valid only when one does it the 'old fashioned way'?
