A good job in Photoshop is like a great dress. If a woman is wearing a great dress people will think, "What a beautiful woman" when she walks in the room and not even notice the dress. A mediocre dress overpowers the woman. Likewise, with good work in Photoshop, people will only notice the beauty of the image and never realize what was done to get it there.
