Anywhere between 2 adjustments and 315 but I generally know what I will do with a photo before I press the shutter button.

If you'd said between 2 and 300 fair enough but lol @ the very precise figure of "315" Grin

most of my adjustments follow this pattern;

View
Crop
Resize
Sharpen
Move to Recycle Bin
Open pack of Salt & Vinegar
Eat Crisps and plan when to go re-shoot!

Thats the part i think a lot of people dont understand/realise

Editing isnt always about fixing mistakes or trying to make a bad shot better. An experienced photographer (creative or otherwise) will often have an image in their head that they want to create before they release the shutter. They will set up the shot and exposures to suit the rest of the process (the editing). The photograph isnt just the part where you press a button, its involves the initial concept all the way through to the finished image. If someone chooses not to edit, well thats their choice and their concept, but others have concepts that involve a little more creativity and styling (separating the 'recording' from the 'artistic' approach, largely)

Oh boy here we go again.
Are we togs or Adobe geeks.
I personally prefer to spend time getting the shot right to start with.
Shooting in Raw inevitably means some post processing but I do try to keep it to a minimum.
I to left a club that I had been a member of for some years as they were concentraing on processing and exhibits rather than actually taking pictures.
Its all a personal choice to me photography is "Historical Art"
History = record the moment
Art = make it look appealing

Whereas I prefer to shoot crap and create something passable in the warmth of my home.

And by saying this means you think any image that has been edited in any way has mistakes or is inferior. Kinda proves my earlier comment

If you're creating images for business or pleasure and you want them to look as good as possible you may need to be both.

There is a gallery option to upload Before and After shots (B). It seems little used by members, and cannot be selected as a gallery option filter.

Why is there a assumption amongst some, that those of us who do name a few adjustments don't care about how the image looks in camera?
Crap in crap out

There are two main reasons why I post process:

1 - My skill level is not where I would like it to be, some fixing is necessary.

2- I am too poor to buy some of the equipment I want, so I post process to get the look I was after.
