Some of the responses are indicative of the 'me first' crap that pervades. We are animals and no more important than any other animal. We need to get over our self importance otherwise we have had it.
Great photo.

Aaron801: I get that the fashion industry tends to promote an unrealistic kind of look for women and that it's easy to argue that this promotes some really unfortunate attitudes about women's bodies, self image, etc. Still, it seems to me that, like it or not, fashion is all about the fantasy of some kind of perfect, often unobtainable able image. With this in mind it seems like of silly to place this kind of limitation of images that are made for the purpose of fashion; the whole idea of it is a kind of lie.

With documentary images rules about post processing make total sense, but in this case, not so much...

This really isn't the forum for this debate. Far too little insight from some folk.

A world of difference between your Big Mac looking different and mental health issues associated with purveying the 'perfect' image.

I sort of agree. But many impressionable folk are exposed to these lies and it doesn't always end well.......

Great camera. When did the camera used replace the photographer?

Or use a massive superzoom and crop twenty shots out of one scene taking advantage of you many megapixels.

Great stuff. I'm a die hard DSLR user but I love what folk can take with these devices (blimey, I sound old, Oh, I am....!)

genrxr: News flash for the person who said this is so tragic!

Did it ever occur to you that maybe this Seahorse life is much better off because it found that Q tip?

It found a way to anchor itself while travelling and using little energy.

The much more damning and dangerous and well, I will call it tragic, is to elevate a ocean critter to the level of a human being.

Humans actually work to make the oceans better. I do not ever recall a Seahorse working to make the environment better for all man/animal kind!

The world we live in today is much better than it has ever been. Start cracking down on socialist/communist countries like China that pollute and it will be even better!

Idiots.

Other polluters. I seem to recall a country that has pulled out of the climate accord..........

G1Houston: Watching how far Apple has pushed the envelope in solving real photography problems, WB, DR, bokeh, and lighting ..., it is hard not to be frustrated by the lack of bold improvement from traditional camera makers ...

It's called technique, lens choice and processing. Not everything in life comes free.
