I'm not entirely a photography purist even though I lean more toward SOOC shots and almost always prefer the cropping I do with my eye in the viewfinder to any improvement I can make later with the crop tool.  I post process a lot of my photos, but it's generally with a minimalist's touch.  Some pictures are different though and they call out to be messed with until they're right.

I worked for a long time in Photoshop before I got this image as gritty and overexposed as I think it wants to be. I'm still not sure I got it but it reminds me of a Terry Richardson photo.  So it must be close.
