I am on the record for saying artists should select the level of latitude with which they are comfortable. In terms of post-processing if you want psychedelic colours that’s your prerogative. What is important is the intent. I think intent has a lot to do with personal style. In the first photo I wanted the foreground not be lost in what was a fairly complex shot, so my formatting and masks worked to make sure that area was highlighted or at least did not disappear. In the second the graffiti/art work was lost in all of the other things surrounding it, and processing in Luminar, Aurora HDR, and Tonality was driven by a desire to tone down the city elements surrounding the artwork.
