Re: "shopping in" and "cloning out" ?

I agree with the general sentiment that there really is no right or wrong answer, for me personally it comes down to are you capturing an image to record something, or making a picture?

If I take a photograph of an aeroplane in a bland sky and use LR to add some drama, does that not change the capture of the image because it is not what they eye saw?

I have seen some 'shopped' aviation images that have been beautifully done. Even though by virtue of the aircratft types, numbers or location it is obvious to a knowlegeable enthuisast that it has been shopped, it does not stop them from being great pictures.

If such pictures are not being represented as 'out of the camera captures' I just see it as creativity. Good luck to those with the skills and know how, I wish I could do that kind of thing.
