I know others use Photoshop that way. And it doesn't bother me, unless the end result includes an obvious excision or superimposition that goes against the truth of the image. I'm sure that my "ethical" considerations are in part the product of all the photography books I read as a teen. But I should have concentrated more on darkroom techniques, because many of the tricks I have eschewed in digital photography are ones that the darkroom specialist would have used back in the day.

Oh, and I know how to adjust the water without affecting the sky. But that would have resulted in an image that would have seemed false in relation to my memory of the scene. The detail is there now. It's just submerged.
