Here is a nice snap I took of the Sydney harbor last time I was there…
…but it has been edited. Here is the original:
Although in reality the Opera House is situated relatively near to the harbor bridge the it is still far enough away as to appear quite small in the photo. I took a bit of artistic license to enlarge the Sydney Opera house a little and it looked better, it actually looked more real and the viewer would benefit from a clearer view of the Opera House. Then I enlarged it some more and it's still didn't look bad, in fact some people commented how good it looked, but when I turned of the layer an realized just how much I had changed it. Have I crossed the boundary between enhancement and fabrication? Have I digitally altered the size of the Opera House too much? Is the result a lie?
