This is pretty bad!!! If these aren't photoshopped images, then where is the boy in the second photo? I guess the boy froze in mid-air while the other vanished!!! Both of these photos need to be eliminated, because neither are posted in photoshop. He has many other fakes as well. Check-out these 2 and see who agrees with me.

Fake! both of them! I put in my Photoshop to take a closer look and I have no doubts! The boy in the boat, left foot fingers missing, the resolution of the boy is bigger like the background resolution, the boys pixels are smaller. The hands are doesn't touch the floor, you can see clearly was cropped out from a different picture.
The flying boy: look at the fingers! still has blemish from the original picture and the shape is not real, pixels same like the other: smaller.
And definitely the boy is vanished!!!
Fake with huge score!

Very Fake!! My photos can't get 700 points, yet theses fakes both get over 700. I guess a person has to cheat to win.

He has a lot! Transportation, fine art, Landscape, people... I don't know... I only have over the 700 in PS Art. How somebody could have "face" to cheat like this?
Just like he spit in the face of the other photographers...

well, times change. Photography is now more a graphic, digital art. I'm sure many people don';t know Niepce (without him, we wouldn't enjoy photography) and the first photographers who really told stories in their pictures like Jacques-Henri Lartigue or Henri Cartier-Bresson. But this has nothing to do with pixoto which is still good. I think it could solve many problems if we could have more specific categories, The photoshop one is good already but as you mentioned, photoshoped pictures should be uploaded into this category. I would be nice to have also a HDR category (which i also like a lot, don't understand me wrong). But in the other side I would really enjoy a black and white or a night category and more pictures just like we shoot them without too much changes ( a little bit of levels or sharpness work is okay) but anyway more natural and real pictures. More photography as digital art.
What do you think about this?

Sounds good, for honest people, but cheaters don't care about categories or rules. Just look at the photos I posted as fake, fake, fake, at the top of this page and you'll see what I mean.
