I'm actually starting to get annoyed by all your mirrored pics Altoro, especially since they're being front-paged...I'd rather give 5's to something that actually exists than a Photoshopped figment of your imagination, waves, clouds and all...and don't come back with a "what do you think is in surf mags?" because there's a difference between touching something up, and creating an altogether new picture by mirroring and changing backgrounds...keep your Photoshopped beauties, I'd rather see something real when I click over to MSW

I am one of ''those people'' who gave this photo a +5, not because I thought that it was real, but purely and simply because I like it. In fairness to Altoro he openly admits that his shots have been photoshopped, unlikely others on this site that has put up photos and then claim them to be real. Yes Opal I do agree with you that it is better to see ''real'' waves, but saying that on the odd occassion it is good to see something like this photo as well.

I see what you're saying man, and I've gotta apologize, I was in a crappy mood earlier in the day and probably took it out too harshly on you...I respect what you do, and you've got skills, I guess I'm just thinking of the people who DO rate the photo highly upon first glance, thinking it's real, that's all...didn't mean anything personal, sorry if it came out like that

I here what your saying, but the point is that I,m not trying too fool anyone by pretenending that these photos are not photo shopped. That like telling a writer that its wrong too write fiction because its not the truth. I think of my work as art not documentation, most of my wave shots are Mirrored and the right and left is way to exact too fool anyone and thats not the intent. If you dont like my munipulated photos score them a one, it really doesnt bother me. Much love and respect to all those who show respect!!

my dreams consist of surfing Chopes- and Mav's-like waves on the lake I grew up on, so try to chop together a picture of that...in the "real world" there's enough photographers out there who take stellar shots without having to re-arrange the elements of the photo, and they're more than worthily rewarded front-page status on MSW, along with whatever magazines want their shots...I'm not ragging on your photo-taking ability, which seems evident, but let the photos speak for themselves, no need to alter them like you do now...(and just in case you're wondering, I haven't rated this or any of your photos yet...but I think the current 3.625 on this one tells you and the rest of us all we need to know)
