A Yellow Rump and Comments on Editing (Three Photographs) and More on WordPress

I had a comment on my blog a while ago from someone who appreciated edited photographs but preferred to show their photographs just as they were taken. I have no problem with the choices people make in the tools they use or choose not to use. I know my cameras are pretty good at white balance, exposure, contrast, and initial sharpening. But they are not perfect and often need tweaking. Sharpening is a special area as sharpening for the web is slightly different from for a wall-mounted photo. Color and exposure are different if your camera uses a color space like Adobe RGB or SRGB. Maybe I could do a better job on in-camera exposure and using the frame, rather than tweaking exposure afterward and cropping. To sum up cameras are not perfect, how and if you choose to address (or not) these issues is up to you. One thing is certain though, we would all like everything to be perfect once we press the shutter button. I have grown to enjoy editing but it is a different part of the art than the capture.
On the changes to Reader in WordPress: I have been informed that if someone posts four or more photographs four of those photographs will show in reader as a gallery, the only option suggested was posting fewer photographs. I find this a bit hard to swallow, among other objections it might mean fewer people make that second click to the full post.
