The left picture shows the fine line between millecrepe cake and just a stack of crepes. Also it showcases how I should ironed the tablecloth because the horizontal line underneath the plate bothers me. But it used to be worse. It used to look like the one on the right.
A while ago I used to be quite a purist in that I refused to do any digital retouching to my pictures, however with time that point of view has changed. Gradually, first by justifying cropping then lighting until I am now at a point where I just want the best possible picture, with or without retouching. Photomanipulation has always been there, it just got easier and more readily available when everyone went digital.
