Clint Dunn: I'm pretty sure that any bride who listens to this 'advice' doesn't know what a 'full format' camera is anyway.

Any bride with half a brain would just pick a photographer based on their portfolio and price.

Mostly and unfortunately, the price.

Sometimes we argue that the best equipment takes the best photos, which it is not true, as we all know. In this case, I think it is unfair, because not everyone can have a drone and therefore shooting from these angles. This kind of photography should be in a completely different part of the competition. And yes, the photo seems just an abstract texture. I'm his compatriot but I can't vouch for this.
The second one is askew, which is a major error coming from a professional photographer. Also a bit flat. I'm not a fan of Photoshop, I don't even use it in 99% of my photos, but the photo needs some pp.

Nikita66: I know people love their pets, but really, this is such boring subject matter.

As it is landscape photography and selfies but the internet is flooded with that...

Why?

The fact that it has Selfie as part of the name makes me automatically avoid it. If you want to ruin a product call it selfie

razadaz: Very few photographs have ever been a simple matter of record. Printing lighter or darker, altering contrast levels, and even cropping can dramatically alter the original image. People were air brushing and retouching images long before photoshop came along.

And what do those basic adjustments have to do with this??? It's like putting your head on a photo of mr. olympia. Would you call that fair or even close to real?

Fishchris: Too many purists here. How do i type a big LOUD Fart sound ? :) Lol
This sounds awesome !
It's all about the end product ! How one gets there is completely not important.

@landscaper1 search the meaning and origin of the word "photograph"

"The fact is that there never was, and quite possibly never will be, a camera capable of recording a scene in the same way that the human eye/brain combination can". You are right. They can´t merge multiple scenes in one ;) Because that's not a photograph

fuego6: great.. might as well not even bother taking photos of real places any longer... just snap a photo... and replace everything with a few clicks... modern phofakery!

That's what 500px and other sites are all about!

madeinlisboa: I have one photo that looks a lot like #6 and it never passed from phase one in contests. This one is clearly with the wrong white balance and it is in the list. Gee... what an unfair world :)

Duncan D, thanks, but they are not very saturated. I selected the nikon vivid profile and add vibrance to compensate the loss of saturation with clarity., that's all (not 110 ;)
I wonder why the "only thing close"... is it because it is not squeaking? lol

Alexander Raemer: They are all photoshoped...

Lightroom is a real kind of darkroom (but light :) Photoshop is an application to fake photos by changing them drastically if necessary, which, in my point of view, will not be photos anymore but digital art. Two different worlds

TyphoonTW: The little bears pic is very cool. The last one pushed the saturation slider up to 11 ( or 110)

And those cables bother me so much. Instead of ruining the image, the author could have removed them.
