To 'E' or Not to 'E'

Is it OK to edit photographs to improve an image?  It's not's something I do very often (mainly because I'm not very good at it) but once in a while a photo seems to call out for a bit of tweaking.  That's what I thought with this recent Cuckoo shot anyway. As long as it's not faking what happened or what I saw, I think it's perfectly acceptable to do this - after all it's only what darkroom photographers have done for years to improve shots.  I'll let you be the judge.
