rocky_howard: LOL, look at the same place but from a different photo done by another guy.[farm9.staticflickr.com image 640x366]Yup, WAY TOO MUCH Photoshop.
rocky_howard: AverageAmericanGuy: No photoshopping should be acceptable in a photography contest.Uh...where do you think Photoshop got its name from? It's been done for decades.
AverageAmericanGuy: It's a disservice to those who work hard for their pure shots.
Iplaybass: Horsecrap. Pure horsecrap.
Rezurok: Here's an explanation from somebody with too much time on their hands: Link
Krieghund: Stop making sense, subby.
Christian Bale: [i.telegraph.co.uk image 620x283]Too much photoshop? Nah, looks the same as it ever was.
Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: AverageAmericanGuy: No photoshopping should be acceptable in a photography contest.Photographers have been shopping their images since film was invented. A darkroom gives you a great deal of control over brightness and contrast, tone, etc. You can crop, and you can even control specific portions of the photograph without affecting other areas. It's seems silly that it's against the rule to do with a computer what film photographers do by waving little paddles around.
madgonad: I also think the runner-up's picture of the projects in Glasgow kind of sucked and should not have won. It looks like it was pulled out of someone's vacation photos.
AverageAmericanGuy: Where one person spends a month of their lives staked out to capture the perfect shot with the sun in the right place in the sky and the weather just so, another will take a mediocre base image and dodge and burn until what he's looking for 'pops'. It's a disservice to those who work hard for their pure shots.
rocky_howard: Now, Photoshop or no Photoshop, how did the former winner beat the new one? It's a much better photo in every sense of the word.Disqualified Photo:[i.telegraph.co.uk image 620x283]New Winner:[i.telegraph.co.uk image 450x620]
AverageAmericanGuy: I'm against those things as well.
