To Photo Shop and The Rules
Lord Dead Saguaro
I was looking through a photo site and discovered a photograph which I thought was striking. Then I wondered how did such a long exposure (surf is blurred) be snapped at such an angel that the photo of a the lighthouse is crystal clear. Then I thought it was taken from a larger, taller, better lighthouse, with the new improved Fresnel lens with the standard double your lifetime guarantee every time 24/7. Finally I realized, photo shop!
For a period of time there will always be people who demand the decisive moment photography and those that love the photo shopped artistry. I for one am all for this step in self-expression. I do realize that photography had its illusionists, then along came airbrush then came Kong (photo shop). I welcome Kong or the other versions of Kong; I would love not for the sake of repression or “artistic statement” Just because I am done with trying to figure out if its real or contrived. I propose some sort of symbol at the lower right hand corner of the picture, invisible to the naked eye, for a small fee say $50.00 you can purchase (straight from My Mule) the right shade of eye glass's to see if its real or if it has a middle man.
This was kinda heavy and I didn’t mean to lay this weight on anyone’s shoulders its just that I need help with this one question. Thank you in advance JW
