Ok if its not a render it looks like it has been photoshopped to hell and back it just doesn't look natural, and I hate photoshopped pics anyway. :P

lol nearly pissed myself laughing there.

I'm afraid none of the photoshopped ones would get my vote, I'm a bit old fashioned there, any image I produce is as it comes out of the camera, I don't mind the odd filter (I use a polarising filter quite a lot myself) but what's the point of changing your image to resemble something completely different I just don't understand the logic, yes it might make it look "better" but its not an image you took, any competition should be photoshop free in my opinion. :fuelfire:

The pic was edited in Lightroom to make adjustments to brightness, sharpness, highlights and shadows etc and not using Photoshop it was shot in raw so isn't a finished pic straight out of the camera.
Photography has moved on from the box brownie :evil:

I use the word Photoshop as a generic word for image manipulation; whatever program used its still not the image you took (or in-fact someone else took on this occasion) :D .

I agree photography has moved on but photo manipulation is not Photography is it :thumbsdown:

I did take the pic and let's be honest your camera will never catch what your eye can see and all cameras will take a slightly different pic but I understand your stance.

I really should enter one this month as it was my suggestion to do something different, but as rally is going to win, not sure I'll bother.

Cracking shot :thumbsup:

I'm afraid none of the photoshopped ones would get my vote, I'm a bit old fashioned there, any image I produce is as it comes out of the camera, I don't mind the odd filter (I use a polarising filter quite a lot myself) but what's the point of changing your image to resemble something completely different I just don't understand the logic, yes it might make it look "better" but its not an image you took, any competition should be photoshop free in my opinion. :fuelfire:
