This picture, in it's original form, was much too dark and much too noisy to be of any use. I "post-process" in Photoshop. I know that alot of photography "purists" harbor certain repulse about everything from digital cameras to digital darkrooms, but I maintain that art not be defined by convention but appeal, character, and emotion. If I can pull life from a photo, life that wasn't existant at the snap of the shutter, then so be it. Can't something be said for imagining beyond sight.

And yes, i was spurned by a professional photographer for digital processing! And no, I don't think so highly of this shot, I am speaking generally.
