What’s real and what’s manufactured?

Enfield, 16th June 2023, 6 am

Until I took a greater interest in photography as a hobby recently, I was never aware of the extent to which photographs are made, by editing and tweaking, in post-production.

I always thought that you either got the money shot or you missed it.

But it appears what goes on afterwards can be equally or more important when it comes to making great images or pictures.

It makes you wonder about what is real and what each of us sees and the extent to which anything is real, or is a scene simply the individual’s perception of reality at a given point in time?
