Im not sure I understand? I wasn't going to put up a retouching section on my site.

Besides, none of my work is retouched anyway, all those images are straight out of the camera, as jpgs. I dont even own photoshop, and I shoot with my camera phone.... remember... ;-)

So I walked down the street and bought myself a Lotus.
......Clearly you got to the "About me" section of my website hahahhaa

Dear Garibaldi...

I confabulated part of Cuervo79's message into something it was not as I was reading it on my blackberry and passing gas on a crowded elevator.

I know that you're philosophically opposed to retouching but you can always sell your clients on the idea of retouching and including it in your much higher pricing but just not do it. That way your clients get the value added feeling that come with retouching without you having to lift a finger. You get to charge more for something you wouldn't do anyway. Everyone's happy and you benefit from retouching with your street cred for anti-retouching stance intact. When they ask to see your retouching just refer them back to the JPEGs and say "I do all my retouching in camera."

Take care. Alan.

gotcha, thought maybe you had mixed something up. So how'd it smell on the elevator? YOu do have a good point though about the non retouching for clients, I don't even take my own images, I have sherpas running my equipment, I just yell "Now" and he pushes the shutter button while I sit in a lazyboy and eat animal crackers.

Super! glad to hear, see you killed two birds with one stone, you got to see my stuff, and got a shiny new flash player!!! lol.

Hey on another note, have any of you had any issues with the about page in terms of finding or using or being able to scroll down to read the lower half of my bio? I had a couple of people say they couldnt and was just wondering if they were just missing the scroller since its on the left upper corner.
