Posing and photoshopping should not be used in street photography

The photoshop I'm talking about here refers to those who use it to change real scenes, adding some characters, scenes or subtracting them from the scenes that originally didn't exist in their photos. Some even change and exaggerate the characters' expressions through photpdhop. This is a very bad attitude towards the art of drama. These are fake photos. In fact, we can all see it. These people are not worthy of being street photographers. Street photography must respect the facts. The work of Henri Cartier-Bresson is the best example.

As for using photoshop to change the size and contrast of photos, that's fine.
