does it mean that you would like to be remember as good editor than a good photographer?
what's the point of buying a very expensive lens and cam if you just want to edit your pictures? rather buy a point and shot cam then PS.....
IMHO if you trust your skills being a good photographer then no need to edit your pictures but if your in doubt then you must have a good software for editing.
Just like a woman to know how pretty she is take out her make up, with the make up is on everything is fake..
