It’s a question you have to ask whenever you see an amazing photograph – has that been Photoshopped?
Now renowned Australian landscape photographer Ken Duncan plans to draw a line in the sand between real and doctored photography with a new international competition.
“We have to create a dividing line between these two philosophical approaches to photography,” Mr Duncan told 9news.com.au.
“I love digital, I’ve got no problems with it, I shoot in digital myself.
“But some people just don’t know when to stop with altering the images. That’s fine if they want to do that, but they shouldn’t sell it as a real picture.”
The REAL Australia Landscape competition, which has a $40k prize pool, will accept entries from photographers around the world – provided their image is judged to be an honest representation of the landscape.
