I keep hearing all this talk about this picture being scanned and that

Hey, what's your problem? You're all over this board accusing people. Either tell it openly on this board or stop mention it at all. Drew/Langdon said they gonna deal with it.

Fine, here it is. I didn't want to jeopardize the voting but you asked for it. Drew/Langdon, sorry guys. If I am wrong then I will admit it with full apologies. I will not however give the titles of submissions that I question.

The tell tale signs of scanning is a signature vertical line pattern. Sometimes it is worse than others, sometimes it doesn't show up at all. Another sign is rosettes, which is created by 4 color process printing. There is a shot in the challenge which displays this but is NOT in question. The rosettes are part of an element of the photograph.

Please do not think that all photos with rosettes or vertical lines are hoaxes. I simply recognize a couple of photos with the vertical lines and am asking for proof of digital exposure. That's all. Perhaps I can create some examples of what I am talking about and post them in a briefcase.

OK conceptgraphics, thanks for making that clear on the board. At least now there's not gonna be a hundred "email me too" messages on this thread (sorry David, my first intention was to ask it too).

lol, I could see it coming. But like I said, unless you know EXACTLY what it looks like, be careful. An out of focus screen door could give the same illusion.

The last thing I want to do is start a rash of disqualifications or people being worried about their submission. I was only concerned with TWO photos.

One last thing, I have personal friends in this Challenge and they work very hard at getting just the right shot, as do 98.7% of the other photographers here. It's not uncommon to take 70-120 photos for the golden shot. I am just trying to protect those of us who work hard at an honest entry. Hell, I even give kudos to the guy pissing in the toilet instead of scanning a photo.

Which is by the way exactly what is in my picture. No, I won't say which one, but suffice it to say that since it has not been disqualified, it is not a scan, so please stop asking if it is. I'll post more details in it's comments regarding the scenario once voting is over.

How true. I have a camera filter that allows the same type of effect.
