Don't think you should count the laptop as you would probably have one anyway.

tried editing k-5 raw file on an old intel 286 with 8 kb of ram lately?
sorry but you must consider the computer as part of the cost of EDITING, sorting and storing the digital files.. and if you upgrade your cameras, you have to look at your computers too...
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

And what is that supposed to mean? Of course I can see the images in your link.

I think some of them are great and the guy is obviously a very talented photo editor. There's also no pretensions about the images as they are not claiming to be something they are not.

So I ask again .... What is cheating about these images?

These images dont pretend to be anything else but what they are. As said lots of time in this thread, honesty it the thing which counts.
I use photoshop a lot. Photography came after Photoshop for me I used my camera a first to capture images to use in montage work just another tool. But this argument is used the other way around in some artists eyes becouse a photo is used as a reference or as part of an image it isn't proper Art as tradition materials aren't used. Each to their own. Just be honest.
Photoshop to me is the best fun you can have on your own.

I'm beginning to think this thread needs to be moved to the Pointless.
I was under the impression that every image captured on any medium, must, just by the process of capture, manipulate the image in some way.

Absolutely! Set your DSLR to JPEG capture, press the shutter, and instantly your camera has produced a fully post processed / manipulated / edited image. Hopefully it will look OK, but that depends on all the presets and custom adjustments you had to set up before shooting, and of course most of the fine control is taken by the (tiny) camera computer using generic preprogrammed algorithims.

Personally I prefer to be the one in control of my shots, and this means turning to RAW and the computer. Its part and parcel of digital photography now - there is no such thing as a 'real' unprocessed digital capture, IMO.
