    Snow Pass Canyon (Digital Manipulation)

    Welcome comments on this digitally manipulated photograph. Also, in general, what do members of this group think about heavily manipulated pictures like the one I posted. Is it still photography? Is it art? Is it junk? Feel free to comment.

    It's the creation of a piece of work using photography. And, as such, it is a legitimate as any other image that started life by being captured by a camera. All this does is apply post-processing that takes it on to being a more abstract/painterly representation of the scene (or scenes) that were photographed.

    In terms of this specific image, my only 'problem' is with that top left corner. I think that colour on the blown areas draws too much attention away from the central parts of the image.

    It's illustration using photography as a source. Illustration can be an art form just as photography can.

    I agree with Donald,

    Anything which is "created" is essentially Art, Of course it is subjective to the viewer, but you only have to look at a few Rothko murals to see an indication of something simplistic & abstract being lauded over and selling for insane money in the Art world.
