    Got to agree with most here - the 'digitally enhanced bit' on snadge's pic should be taken off.

    OK, I'll send the editor an updated page with "digitally mastered". I thought it was only fair to have some kind of note on it since it has been manipulated to a large extent. If you prefer "mastered" to "enhanced" so be it...

    My two cents - the note should be completely removed.

    Ah, your point's too cryptic to understand anyway :p :D

    To be honest, "digitally mastered" not only sounds ultra-wanky, it doesn't really make sense. I don't know what went on with the image, but I'd say phrases like 'digitally processed' or 'adjusted' make more sense.

    Remove it completely?

    Putting ALL things aside... :rolleyes: ,,it simply doesn't feel in-keeping with the spirit of things..I know you ALL know what "I" mean so I won't repeat myself agin..but it ain't right! :(

    *label one you have to label them all as far as I'm concerned...I jus "feel" this wasn't the way to do it, generally and specifically. :oops:

    I guessed that was what you meant, but I did briefly wonder if you were just anti-PS :D . Anyway, I agree entirely - not really in keeping with the spirit of it all to start adding caveats & clauses.

    If you're going to insist on doing it, do it to mine as well please.

    you're mad as a shit house rat, you know that? if you were a lass I would. Totally. But you'd just break my head :(

    who said anything about putting an image down ffs?

    i dont think i ever said it was a bad image, i said i chose not to vote for it because i felt it was over photoshopped for a photography competition. but everyone else liked it and it won. but they all voted it to win knowing it was PS'ed, why shouldnt future people who look at it be given the same information?

    fuck it, you know what i think paul has the right idea.
  19. Firky

    Firky The first of the gang Banned

    I don't think he meant 'down' in that context, dude. At least that is not how I read it.

    now then! :eek: no neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed! neeeeeeeeeeeeed! :(

    I'm not being specific...I agree with people knowing/learning/understanding...but believe that this appears to single out the image in a demeaning way...why not have Note:The teeth are not real on my Old Age pickee...?

    snizz'zzzzn't personal wiskey or alef or anyone come to that...'cet me...I jus feeel it ain't right...can the Winners give up a one liner to describe how they produced their capture maybe? :)
  21. wiskey

    wiskey Albatross Admirer

    well if thats the case fair enough.

    but i think you're right, i'm just narky huh.

    i hereby bow out gracefully.

    Mine was Photoshopped. There was no fuss about that.
    If this is the path people want the competition to follow, though it seems they don't, then change the rules. You can't really start tacking little notes onto things later - it's just not in keeping with the sense of fair play.

    I agree, either have the note for everyone, or for no-one at all*. Seems a bit wanky just to have it added on that one entry.

    honestly m'lady.. :oops:

    *their jus all jealous on me, snadge n riot sky's( :rolleyes: ) PS buffness anways!!! :p ,,,spshlly that mavis and the kisser! ;)


    **but fairdoes it's still Alef's call but I hope somewhere in this he understands what I'm trying to say also...mate it jus jumps out toooo much?

    And tbh with, snadge's pickee in particular I know the shot could have been done with just a 25 dernier stocking on the lens,a polarizer, & a blimmin good meter reading, for film. :)

  29. GarfieldLeChat

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    personally i think the notice should be removed it's a good photograph and it won... that's the end of it surely...

    It implies it won on some sort of technicality by which it has won, rather than it's the populist choice....

    I have been one of the biggest anti proponents of shopping stuff for the photo comp but the prevailing attitude has been for some time that it's allowed.

    The why's and what fors of why you should or shouldn't shop a shot is for another thread, but unless there is to be some kind of explaintion of what techniques have been used in all the photos then it's not needed...

    My 2 pence

    well must admit I'm suprised this debate is still pulling people in....

    as long as the entrant states that it has been " fiddled" with, vote on the merits of the picture, not a distaste of what I feel some people see as an unfair advantage.

    This rule should also apply to darkroom enhanced photo's using film, which there have been a few of with no disclaimer at all.......

    go figure.
