      this must have taken ages to shade in properly. whenever i try this the felt tips make the paper go all wet and fall apart. and where the colours meet it always goes brown.

      nice screensaver though.

      So now we're submitting computer generated plots as our own photographs?

      @BigFrank, jakerome, slowburn:

      This may not be photography, but neither is retouching an image with photoshop until it is "perfect"...

      It seems this group is all about the perfect image, and many will go to great lengths to alter the original image to fit within the confines of this group.

      I have no problem with photoshopped images. Its still art. It was created by a human with the computer as a tool only. This on the other hand is simply a graphical representation of a mathematical formula - the colors were steered by a human. So its pretty much the opposite.

      Is romanedirisinghe tryying to make a point that DMU has been taken over by Photoshop experts?

      I think what Frank means is this: a normal photo is an image of real, 3-dimensional life taken with a camera, which may later be edited using software. This image is entirely a creation of the software. Flickr is a site for sharing photos, and they even go out of their way to discourage its use as a repository for screen shots, drawings, etc. It seems that DMU should have at least the same standards.

      Perhaps I am trying to make the point that DMU has been overrun by Photoshop-crazy people, no comment on experts.

      I try not to photoshop my images if I can help it. I wish other people would do the same.

      Vote with your delete then! There are others with differing opinions.

    14. Jesse Glen 110 months ago | reply

      @romane - would you discourage the use of a flash, or a fisheye lens, or a colour filter too? Photoshop is as much a photography tool as any of those.

    15. romanedirisinghe 110 months ago | reply

      @Jesse Glen: I'm not discouraging the use of Photoshop, or of flashes, or fisheye lenses, or colour filters, etc. I use Photoshop as much as anyone else. What I'm objecting to is the mindless insistence on photoshopping. Does every photo need it?

      No.

      So why is it that people in the DMU group seem to insist on it as a prerequisite?

    16. Mister Phill 110 months ago | reply

      Which people in the DMU group "insist"? What is DMU? A Borg collective?

      Shit.
