What's the difference?

(One of my rules for life is that I don't get into these kinds of conversations. But I'm bored so what the heck.)

The same thing as what you can expect from a paintbrush, or a keyboard, pen, instrument, etc. Taking (and editing) a photo is no less an art than writing, painting, playing music, etc.

I think the question was if he can expect to have nice looking pictures with skills in photography without the skill of editing.

There's a certain image I've wanted to take for many years: a great white egret in full breeding plumage, displaying in front of a dark background. Conditions had never worked out, but I knew that today the stars were aligned: the egrets were in full mating dress, and there were a ton of them around - now all I needed was a bit of luck.
...
Until I eventually found a solitary egret off on a tree, perfectly lit up but with the background in the shade - exactly the conditions I wanted! So I parked myself in front of him and waited. And waited, and waited.

Until suddenly out came a female, up came the feathers, and click went my camera:
I realize your post is from years ago, but I happened to scroll back up to it when this thread just got active again.

Saw a bunch of these smack in the middle of downtown Olrando last month. There's a big rock just off the edge of Lake Eola with some bushes/trees and tons of roosting birds. Photo is from my phone, while on a moving swan boat.



Birds I for sure ID'd include Great White Egrets, Cattle Egrets, Anhingas, Black Swans, Mute Swans, a Great Blue Heron, Muscovy Ducks, Graylag Geese, Common Gallinules, White Ibises and more. A other duck/goose/swan species at the very least hang around there as well.

Graylag goose in Florida?? That's never been reported. They're a palearctic species with only rare sightings in the NE U.S.

I'm pretty certain that what you saw was either an Egyptian goose or a black-bellied whistling duck.

Nope - definitely Graylag Geese. Here's a pic, with goslings. It was a pair, and they were either socializing or bickering with some Swan Geese, and then the whole group turned to loudly warn away the Great Blue Heron that seemed to be eyeing their goslings. Does it not 'count' if they're not truly wild? They're apparently known residents of Lake Eola. You can see them listed on the eBird page for Lake Eola. https://ebird.org/hotspot/L374880

That explains it.

And what "counts" and doesn't is up to how you do your own lists :D.
