Well, I've never seen a photo with that kind of pixel activity, especially around the bird. Can you post a link?

OK -- Call me anal, but I had to do it. Look at these enlargements -- see the square blocks around the bird? That is done with a mouse to change the colour of each pixel. In the second enlargement you can really see where at the top of the bird's head someone erased stuff all around the bird. This is definitely photoshopped. Sorry.

Now that I've previewed this, I can see I didn't even need to post the 2nd pic.

And blow me down - if I so much as "sharpen" or any other enhancement tool on photoshop all of my photos do the same exact thing. So they are all fakes as well?

Yes, you can enlarge any bitmap immage to the pixel level, but if it's an untouched image, you wouldn't see the "erased" pixels. So I did a bit more looking around and found his "portfolio" on this trip to Chernobyl... Seems he took quite a few interesting pics there. However of the 4 or 5 that I looked at only this one seems to stand out more than the others for some reason. Maybe he just does a "clean-up" of his pics... now we do it on the computer, before we did it in the blackroom.

So, yes, I'll have to agree. Whether or not it was touched up, it does seem like the basic content is valid. How cool is that? But, then again, when was Chernobyl? 10 years ago? 15? Wow...

If you go to the site cat linked with the article you'll notice that the photographer must have been sitting at the carcass all day to get some of the pictures he got. If you ask me a bird landing on the foot isn't that out there. So it's really not worth arguing if it was photo shopped or not.

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.
