    Yes, all of that makes a lot of sense to me. It’s all just different paths and different tools to achieve a result in the mind’s eye.

    This conversation reminded me of a recent post by Julian Caverly: https://www.juliancalverley.com/blog/2019/6/11/lotus-cars-from-norwich-to-nevada

    It’s important to note that this is commercial work and not for a photo contest, but since the vehicles were shot in studio and then grafted onto carefully selected backgrounds it demonstrates some of what’s possible. Is this still photography? How is it different in intention from say sandwiching two film images together? Photo contests – not just in the future but today – need to determine whether photography is in fact a representational form of expression. Guidelines get blurry…

    Mike.

    To be honest, all those Lotus Car shots read instantly as renders. They could all be screen grabs from any recent edition of Gran Turismo, and in many cases the video game would look more convincing.

    Someone went to a great deal of trouble to make actual photographs, albeit composites, look like video game captures, for some reason.

    I entered some images, but all of them were classified as General even though some were entered to be in the categories- “The Lone Tree” or “Snow and Ice”. I could not find how to reclassify them correctly on the website.
