Art or cheating? It's landscape Mugsy!! :)

Shoot separate land and sky on location, then meld in Photoshop for a much better composition.
I think it makes nice pictures - go for it. Others may disagree... :evil: :lol:

It's not, in my opinion, cheating but another word beginning with C .........Creative!

To me it's all about how a painter can create the scene he wants, showing us a moment in his / her time that is part real, part imagination plus a lot of talent of course.

Photographs, I think, should be about capturing a moment in time, albeit 1000th of a second where a reflection that's never to be seen again was actually there, just then!...

IF you start fiddling about then just accept that you are being 'economical with the actuality'. You will of course get more WOW but the Photo, for me, remains timeless. A good example would be the photos of war camp prisoners v's the Scream, very different things but both capture agony...
