"This article as does just about any article that bemoans digital enhancement, shows a basic ignorance of the history of photography. Most B+W news photos from days gone by had darkroom jiggery-pokery applied to them in exactly the same way.
Photography has always recorded reality via the filter of the photographer's vision and always will. The specific techniques of how things are done may change, but photographers usually try to make a shot look good.
Warming filters, using the wrong film, using a film with certain characteristics, fill -in flash, dodging and burning in the darkroom is no different from anything shown above and the biggest manipulation of all, using B+W is never objected to by those who dislike altered images."
