That is awesome, but I still don't believe in editing photos.

The only people who don't edit their photos are National Geographic and good journalists. No amount of post processing (or expensive equipment, for that matter) can turn a bad picture into a good one. Photographic vision is all on the photographer, not the technology. Equipment and software are all tools that help the photographer realize his/her vision.

Photographers try to use technology to capture what it is they see either in their minds or through their eyes. Even the best camera today can't accurately reproduce the colors and dynamic range of the human eye, hence the need for post processing. Next time you have your camera with you, take a picture of a sunset or a strongly back-lit sign at a gas station. Compare the image that the camera comes up with and ask yourself if it looks anything like what you saw with your own eyes. Back then people dodged and burned, nowadays we stack and sample layers.

I don't want to start a war about photo editing, but it's just plain stupid to think that post processing is some new or evil concept.

No nobody take offence to this. Up till I joined this site I've always looked up to certin photographs and photographers. I've always tried to take photos to work my way up to the level that that they could take photographs. Then I came here and found out it was all a lie. They was taking photos and editing the crap of of them to make them look fantastic. I have always thought if the photographer was good, they would do it right the first time. Especially if you have thousands of dallors in equipment and you still have to edit them after. I still stand behind that theory. I don't want to post up what I do, because to you it looks like crap. Because I didn't edit the crap out of it, but to me it looks fantastic because it's not, and I'm proud that I was able to get the pic with out editing it.

I don't edit my photos, because I don't have any software to do so.

You are a little off but, some points are right. All picture for press get edited. In the case of Nat. Geo., they are far more vibrant and sharp than they come off the camera. The reset of journalism, Ill give to you. Most of its doen for print in a low res black and white copy.
