The colours are photoshopped right? because expecially the edge of the green to the yellow hat looks incredible shopped. I find it unfair to post photos and not mention the use of photshop or other software in such a way.
Yes, I change the contrast & the saturation. You have a very sharp eyes to see the detail that other may not see, and I thank you for that. I think you mean the little purple dot at the edge of the green and yellow hats, am I right? I didn't Photoshopped that, it just the way it is. I didn't mention Photoshop because it's already mentioned in Camera data. No other software, just Photoshop.
Thanks for the reply. I also use photoshop, imho there is nothing wrong with that. But in the past i stumbled upon Photos which were clearly buried under a ton of photoshop and filters, because otherwise they would have just been boring or plain bad. I think that's fine as long as people are honest with that and clearly state that they made big changes to the image. Photography should still be something natural.. it should show a scene, which would look nice even without filters and most of all... be possible without the help of PS... but i guess i am pretty alone with this opinion nowadays (Especially on artsy-fartsy sites as dA)
If you look in the metadata to the right hand side of the photo, you'll see it says "Software: Adobe Photoshop CS6 (Windows)" under all the camera info. Obviously that doesn't tell you if the colours are shopped or if the software was just used to, say, crop the image, but the information's there for anyone who wants it.
Yeah. But it was just my problem that it wasn't obvious what changes were made. It's not much of a big deal and i really don't want to start a discussion here, but imagine if the bicycles and hats all had the same color in the original photo. Would you still like the image that much? Possibly not, because the most eye-catching effect would be gone. So it would be nice to know for me, if these bikes really were there in all their above shown rainbow-fanciness or if it is just a digital manipulation.
I can't say that I'd enjoy an image of for-real rainbow bikes any more than I'd enjoy an image of same-colour bikes photoshopped to form a rainbow. I would quite like to know exactly how this image was produced, just to satisfy my curiosity, but I hardly feel that altering the colours without announcing it in the comments would be "unfair" to anyone.
But yeah, it's not exactly worth getting into in detail.
