    long long time ago, ppl also debate if a photographer must develop his/her own negative, do contact sheet, then do enlarging and post production touch-ups etc.

    but of course, most ppl find shooting a pleasure and time spent in darkroom torturing.

    Refusal to accept that technology has caught up with us, and still thinks that photography should come straight out from the camera without any post-processing. That's cheating ourselves.

    In reality, most people who are paying ( in terms of money ), enjoy or like the feeling of being cheated. Like...paying to watch a sci-fi movie ...avatar. And they give thumbs up after the show.

    Example..wedding photography...close up of couple portraiture ( no wedding photographer / bridal studio ) would dare to produce the original untouched image as final to their client.
    Same go for those shooting models for products of cosmetics and skin care.
    Most common are the slim fit before and after comparison.

    As in your terms....even the stunning landscape or sunset scenery with a polarising filter / neutral density filter added on will be considered cheat.

    So, conclusion...all photographers are cheat. ( with some exception ? )

    the 'cheating' nowadays ALREADY begins IN the camera ........... the parameters set by the Image Processing engine/software (DIGIC, Venus, Tru Pic etc etc etc.....)

    Is using the colour setting, sharpness, contrast, DRO (dynamic range optimiser) and Image Quality in the camera cheating?

    Ahhh....

    I guess so. A few months ago when I started using my D5000, there were people who feed back my pictures were "too sharp". But at that time I didn't do PP

    But my camera sharpness setting was set to near max
    One reason also why I liked my Nikon was because it could process the colours in ways I couldn't repeat with RAW file. I guess I've been cheating since day 1.

    Photography is fair : You gain publicity with the quality of your images. Unless the images are stolen, there is no way of cheating yourself higher...

    Cheating? The moment you do composition. Making others believed what you saw.

    What would one consider as "cheating" in photography? Cheating is hard to define, so a simple definition is a deviation from what has been taken straight from the camera using just the camera lens and body, whether digital or film.

    (1) Cropping
    (2) Double or multiple exposure
    (3) Use of various filters - color, polarizer, ND, rainbow, etc
    (4) Photo editing using Photoshop, etc.
    (5) Stitching of photos to form pano, 360 degree views, etc
    (6) HDR photography using Photomatix, etc.

    Your views much appreciated.
