WilliamJ: Photo manipulation is almost as old as photography itself is. Photography has never ever been a solid proof, excepted in some exeptionnal cases when it has been granted that the photos could not have been manipulated... Humm...

In a word like in hundreds, this "study" is a vast joke as it's intending to open open doors.

You're right of course, but with film it is the print that is manipulated and not the negative. The neg was only manipulated when it was large enough to do so. When photography migrated from glass plates to acetate film and then multi-layered colour negative and slide film, manipulation of the negative is practically imposible.

Impossible in the sense of not leaving obvious editing evidence.

nerd2: I'm typing this using a liquid cooled PC with overclocked 4.8Ghz CPU, 1080 GPU and 64GB RAM and cherry blue mechnical keyboard.... which happens to be cheaper than decked out macbook 'pro'

I doubt any tech savy people will choose mac over pc.

Like The City Lane said below, I think this is a pointless "arguement". Even with any pros and cons considered I prefer the Mac. Simple. If your preference for any reason is a PC, that's fine.

On article Ten ways to shake 'photographer's block' for good (89 comments in total)

Personally, I just down tools and walk away. Sometimes combined with looking at my photography books or taking a trip to Hay-on-Wye and searching for inspiration. The enthusiasm comes back naturally. Forcing it can sometimes be the worst thing.

I do this on a regular basis.

golfhov: Copyright battle comes up here all the time.
In all fairness the "monkey selfie" was not Slater's work and the user he went after that started this whole entanglement was wikipedia. Not some greedy megacorporation.
Then peta hi jacked the case to promote their agenda. Same as now the photographic community has now hijacked the story to promote their agenda.
TitLe of this story should be struggling photographer cannot cut it in competitive industry.
This article is better than some others bit the original Brisbane article shold be read and the title ignored to truly understand a simple tale of an interesting story involving a cast of shady and incapable characters involved in monkey business

@ golfhov The ruling is only applicable in the US under US law. That law has no jurisdiction anywhere else. You are confused, I merely expressed my own personal opinion, I care not if anybody, expert or otherwise disagrees with me.

@ golfhov, Sure, you're entitled to your opinion. I disagree with it.

A 1000 monkeys will just eat leaves and create a whole pile of sh!t.

UneVache: This can't be just the end of the story : now they have to give the monkey a press card :D

and full Human rights and a Green Card. Then it can get a bloody job and earn its living instead of sitting on its rear eating leaves.

PhotoKhan: PETA are the DB's we already know they are but the "douche" move by Wikipedia is as formidable as it inexcusable (...the camera was his and the photo wouldn't exist if David Slater hadn't traveled there...).

Just yesterday, I responded positively to the annual pledge made by Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales, as I have been regularly doing.

Because of this, I won't be contributing anymore.

I invite David Slater to open a pledge fund to which I will gladly contribute instead so he can, at least, recover financially or, preferably, drown PETA in their own poison.

Wikipedia's action in this case I class as unethical. I won't be contributing anymore until they rectify their stance.

I disagree. The monkey selfie was and is Slater's work. The monkey only played a small part in the image and the bulk of the work was Slater's and without him the image just would not exist.

mikeodial: I guess builders should be getting the credit for putting up an architectural design. He obviously created the picture! If he had used a remote release would he have owned the picture. Does the hangman get the responsibility for killing the condemned or the Judge and Jury?

"Does the hangman get the responsibility for killing the condemned"

In the case of Charles the II, yes. His executioners were themselves later executed.

@Nicolas06

Considering that 1% of the world's population own 50% of its wealth, you are addressing the wrong people.

Considering that Europe alone throws away perfectly good food per annum that can feed the world's hungry FOUR times over, you are addressing the wrong people!
