I was just wondering if this photos that are in transportation/Automobiles should be here or in digital art or somewhere else, they are all cut and shunt photo shop made. The top 3 photos are all the same by the same person. In fact nearly every photo in this category are his and all are photo shop creations, there is one car at least with two different backgrounds: here are 4 examples I one he has cut out the car roof, http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

If this is not blatant cheating and flooding the category with one persons work then I don't know what is, but all his posted photos are manufactured, cropped, cut and pasted, how is this far to those who have posted genuine photos, here are a few more examples.

this is totally manipulating the field to rip off the system. So Jasenka Lukša Vujasić how about doing something about it.

Personally I find this the most frustrating of all Pixoto's rules. It does suck to have a really nice photograph lose to something that isn't a photograph in a competition for (wait for it) -- photographs.

Lou, am surprised these pics did so well, the light looks all wrong and it is such an obvious arty creation.

is another thread promoting the separation of photos and manipulations.

If we want to SELL pictures as stock, the designer does not want OUR manipulations, she or he will do his OWN. If you want to SELL ART, then call it art.

We should have a box to click in every upload manipulated (other than contrast, brightness, white balance tiny invisible edits like dust) or not. Which means - can it be done in LR only or do you need Xtra filters.
then in the duels the tweaked pics should duel against each other, not against PHOTOS.

I am relatively new here but the blatant tweaking really puts me off, I have done PS editing for 20 years now and pride myself in doing invisible edits with some skill. Say you got an ugly cable in a wedding pic, by all means remove it. Or a stain on the bride's dress etc.
