Ok for starters this is the same guy that stole trey ratcliff's HDR of time square and claimed it was his
it happens to be the exact photo that trey goes into great detail of the processing of it in one of his ebooks
SOoooo. I would take anything on the peter Lik site with a bag of salt... it might not even be his!
Peter Lik only deals with high res for his work for sale. Not sure about this one. Did this person in question just give Peter his full res 21MP 16bit tiff file. Got to be joking aren't you? So now, you are saing Peter's a fraud. Duuuude, Peter isn't that much into HDR. Although he does shoot digital these days, his work is mainly 617 medium format film
I was simply posting the link to this previous incident, let people read it and make up their own mind about the guy.
The link is there, you can read it and make up your own mind about it.
I do think many of his shots are astetically pleasing however I have no respect for anyone that would take another persons image and claim it as their own.
seems i picked up a few more smites for pointing this out though
I dont have a problem with photoshoping, especially if its just a simple exposure blend of a double exposure. I mean its "fine art" this genre seems to mean anything goes with PP
I personally don't like alot of the stuff many fine art photographers produce. But if people are prepared to pay those insane prices then more power to them.
I do think this particular moon shot has had a little more than 2 shots of different exposures blended
