    Can you say "photoshop"?

    I'll let the following link speak for itself.

    As new in Hamburg was looking for some new photo stores and one that was recommended to me is:

    http://www.photohaus.de/index.php?id=63

    And when you go to gallery of photohaus:

    http://www.photohaus-galerie.de/


    you can see old historical photos (that are great):

    http://www.photohaus-galerie.de/index.php?id=74

    and new photos (that are heavy photoshoped and no good) - any other link in gallery part.

    I think people over photoshop their work because they want to hide emptiness and meaningless with shining technique. It works for masses … but not in apug .

    Yes, of course!
    Sure...many of those photographs have received their fair share of post-processing manipulation.
    Why, not?
    Those submitted entries are basically art contest submissions, and therefore, are not bound
    to the constraints of photo journalistic realism.

    I do Photoshop every day in my business. Here's a sample. When I do photography, it is honest work.

    I've discovered that the link presents different pictures in different orders each time you click on it. When I first opened the thread it was because I had seen a string of multiple nature and scenic photos that were obvious photoshop jobs. It's just dirty pool to me, in words that I can't gather.

    So, is Lightroom and Elements okay? Or is editing in general not "honest"?

    burning and dodging in the darkroom
    and dodging while exposing
    using slow or fast shutter speeds
    or fast / slow films
    apertures
    developing the film ( or paper negative or glass plate &c)
    a certain way ... in a certain developer because it may do something
    "extra special" ( or not )
    toning bleaching

    ... its all manipulation

    who cares what awards are given out for mastery of their process ...
    its a process just as much as the traditional ones ...

    I agree with JNanian. I've starter running my color scans through lightroom.

    After first spending so much time on APUG, i was extremely reluctant to do this at the least.
    But I found, that by using the simple tools provided, I was able to create a better image.
    Now, maybe i'm conservative with any "modifications" I do to the images.
    But in the end, the image content is king, and by going completely hybrid for my LF color neg work, It gives me a better image overall.
    And in the end, that's all that matters, to me. Sure, some over-do it, but this high-falutent sense of purity only goes so far, when your perfect pure photograph is of a damn rock and a stick or a tree.
