Has this photo been post-processed?
For serious photographers, every photo requires post-production.
The late technology of the digital age is equivalent to the development of film in the film age. Different processing methods can make photos printed on the same film look very different, so photographers in the film era are developing the films themselves to ensure that they get the results they want.
In the digital age, we have replaced and expanded the development of film with post-production software such as Photoshop. Why can we allow flush technology without tolerating later technology?
Some people would say that the photos in the later period are not real, how can the colors be so bright? Did you know that all small cameras have a photo processing program inside the camera? Once a photo is taken, it will immediately adjust the color, add brilliance and sharpness, and finally generate a jpg photo. This process is also a post process, and It's the late stage you can't choose. Do you feel that the photos taken directly with the small camera are not real?
After so much, I just want to explain a point: in the later stage, there is only a difference in degree, and there is no absolute difference between existence and absence.
