Stop letting photoshop images succeed in "fine art" people category. There are many of the top scorers this week with fake photos. It's really not fair!!! The photo below has duplicated birds added to it, and there are many others. All the points they achieved by cheating, should have went to other photographers. There are many this week that should be eliminated. Check out this one.

the sad thing about this cheating thing is the points lost of the photo they (the photo used for cheating) had dueled against. It can't be taken back, putting some photos in jeopardy of getting the right points, awards, or probably cash.

Wow. Nothing like an old fashioned lynch mob. Guilty until proven innocent. Let's hang him first and ask questions later. I guess we are not as civilized as we like to think we are.

THIS TOG IN QUESTION DOESN'T SHOW EXIF IN HIS PHOTO.
there are two reasons for not including exif in his photos
1. they are intentional
2. BECAUSE THEY ARE COPIED FROM THE WEB

I often don't have Exif in my photo's either but that's because I use two different editing programs and often split an image into CMYK and then recombine (which destroys the Exif) because I love messing with the colours.

But in this case - I agree - he's probably just copied from the web. Just don't make assumptions because of missing Exif that's all I'm saying here.

Jay, Izhar

While I completely understand your point of view re EXIF data PLEASE dont tar us all with the same brush

some of my images have no EXIF data simply because they are images from slides or negatives which have been scanned into the PC, they are all my images but I'm not about to start going through my image bank manipulating EXIF data into them as I simply have too many

Just my 2pence worth :)

Does anyone here know this person Izhar. It seems like she is promoting the site called metart. How do we know this is not just a set up for someone with a grudge against David. How do we know that someone didn't steal Davids work, not that a porn site would ever do that.(Can't imagine that. :) )
I have had disagrements with David in the past but he should be allowed to defend himself.
I am going to reserve judgement until all the evidence is in. IMHO.

My apologies to you if you took offense at my words. I tend to also get mad when I see other people publicly accused of a crime even if I don't care for that persons politics. You were correct in your accusations against David and I applaud you for enthusiasm in pursuing the matter. He was a bad person for doing what he did. I have seen many innocent people suffer simply for being accused of a crime and I like to make sure of a persons guilt before I jump on the band wagon. I wish you well in whatever you do.

I'd really love to understand the motivation behind cheaters like this.

Aside from the #1 awards that result in a cash prize, the rest of the awards aren't actually worth anything (aside from a minor Internet ego boost).

So these people are cheating to obtain a graphic. It's not like these awards transition into the real world ... if someone tried to hire them as a photographer they'd be found out as a fraud pretty quickly. It's like buying yourself trophies for sports you don't play ... I really don't get it.

Well said Izhar. The sad part (the saddest part, actually) is that what they are willing to "bend the rules for" is for an e-mail (or two, or ten) that tells them that they had a good photo of sorts. They gain nothing else.
