I agree!
Ok, there are no rules to photography, apart from the golden rule: that being there are no rules.
For guidance only: I would advise looking at the background first, followed by the content between the background and the lens.
Personally I dislike intensely Photoshopping a capture. It's an admission of failure, not being careful about clutter in the frame. Also, wherever possible, I like to keep the full image intact, without cropping. 99.9% of my film images remain FF.

In a photography club I go to, it's almost a badge of honour to be a whizz with Photoshop and to do amazing post-processing manipulations. Untinkered photos do occasionally get accolades in their competitions, but not often. I agree - the limited opportunity for post processing with film is a good discipline.

I gave up on photography clubs a while ago. The last group I joined had so many photoshopped images I had to resist shouting out... The worst witnessed was a picture of a female model with the moon behind her the size of a giant beach ball. Almost everyone else thought it was wonderful... "oh Dave, please tell us how you managed creating that fab image in Photoshop". I thought they were taking the pi$$, but later on they set up a tutorial group with Dave at the keyboard. God almighty give me strength.
