    The overall winner was a beautiful photograph but some of the others seemed to be a bit heavy handed with the Photoshop or whatever they use these days to tinker with the colours.

    I agree @B3. I've only looked at the overall winner and the Beautiful Gardens category so far, but they all seem to have been heavily enhanced. 
  • The overall winner is stunning.
    Do though wonder how many photographs were taken via a drone?

    Thank you for posting this @Alan Clark2 in Liverpool.  I would gladly display any of these framed on a wall.  My favourite is the view in Derbyshire, but that could be my Northern bias!  I see nothing wrong with enhancing, provided it looks natural, or using drone photography - isn't that part of the artistry?

  • I thought they were really good. Photography to this level takes a lot of dedication.
    Post processing has alway been a part of image making - whether PS or in the dark room.

    Beautiful photographs but I have seen some equally beautiful photographs on this forum posted by members keen on photography.  :)

    Real life is more subtle but maybe I'm missing the point 😒

  • Some lovely photographs there - the abstract ones are my favourites I think.  Definitely photography as art.   :)

    Thanks for the link, @Alan Clark2 in Liverpool

    I loved th a abstract too but some of the 'real life ' photos didn't ring true.
