You have created a silk purse from a sows ear...... Very well done Ivor
Does an artist create a fake when choosing what to include on his canvas. Photography is an art form to use as you please and always has been. Modern software has given us all the opportunity to become artists.

An art in itself, Ivor and a wonderful ability to create something more than a basic scene.
Much like an artist would add a flower, a tree or maybe a boat to a painting.
It's not called; the art of deception for nothing you know... Wink

For me, the camera is the artist's tool providing something purely to work with. What you have created from the original image is wonderful, and just goes to show what can be done.

Being an artist on a computer. Beats having paint and brushes and a lot of mess. A beautiful image created from a ordinary scene Ivor.

Think everyone is in agreement Ivor! Think whatever way we arrive at an image, we all trying to create an image people will appreciate. You have done just that - good on yer! SmileSmile

Wow Ivor. The difference is staggering. I love the image you’ve created.

Cracker Ivor - brilliant processing !

Defintely art (and first class processing skills).
5 Oct 2021 6:19PM
Art of fake? I don't care. The lead version is great and I applaud your imagination and processing skills.

Sometimes it's hard to know how much work someone has done on an image to make it really good.
Part of me wants to know. Part of me thinks it doesn't matter. The end result is the important thing.
We now have so much software to play with. It would be crazy to ignore it.
Working on the Critique Team, we are constantly asking to see the original. This way we can critique the work that has been done, and also offer alternative processing suggestions.
I was truly impressed when I first saw your lead image and then, seeing the original, I was gobsmacked !

Well, we'd all have much less art to enjoy if shortcuts or deviations from 'reality' were prohibited. But somewhere in the grey area between artistry and fakery, I think it makes some difference whether the substitute sky was captured by the photographer who displays the work or taken from another source. In this case Ivor, you've replaced the sky skillfully so that there's not too much competition between its brilliant colours and the more subdued light that you've given to the main subjects which in reality would be simple silhouettes against that new dawning sun.

Also, I'm not sure that the version should be dismissed as a sow's ear. I won't be too surprised to see it again with the original sky at some time in the future, presented with an appealing minor key treatment. Bob
