Why do you feel bad with it?

Very nice. And yes, why feel bad about it? It's all about the results, isn't it ;)

@ jotty23: mhh, i don´t know, to me the reengineering of a picture has something of cheating. maybe it´s just hard to admit that, in the search for truth and beauty, truth is regularly beaten by beauty. ;)

Who knows what truth is? The way things look for us? Or the way things seem to be for a bee?

when I do photography, I don't feel as reporter doing a documentary work. I want to show things, like I have seen and felt them. And often I could not show that right of the camera but only by postprocessing. So I don't have the feeling of cheating, my "work" has to be finished by postprocessing.

Of course, this is my very personal point of view. I respect your way as well.

i perfectly understand what you´re saying and your argument of showing what you really saw and felt is very strong. in this context i think it´ll be easier for me to gimp up one or another pic from time to time. thanks! :)
