Brunton said:What about composite pictures (note I did not say photos, since the result isn't), where in some cases most of the image is of real life digitally added behind some modeled element? Are they okay or not? And if so, what per centage of the picture must be model to still be okay?
I suggest two categories - one for a completely modeled scene, and another for those who don't model the complete scene, and count on image manipulation to make a convincing shot.
No problem, grande man,grande man said:Mark, I'm cool with the enhanced pics. This is just a friendly contest but it would be nice if the photographer disclosed any digital enhancement in the pic's description. I know where you stand on the issue and can see both sides of the discussion. Let's let the members decide which they prefer, computer prowess, modeling skill, or a combination of both.
My own pic in the April contest used Helicon focus to help overcome my cheap camera's deficiencies...
