Forgive me if I'm wrong, but that looks like a fairly obvious use of PhotoShop...the lighting around the edges of the bear and where he touches the ground doesn't look right at all.
Yes, it's an humouristic picture, yes it's not real and yes, it's photoshop. Forgive me for the lack of pictures in this article but I am not a bear photographer. Any pictures of European brown bear will be gladly accepted for this article to replace the present ones.
Exceptionally, the pictures I have used for this article are not all of them mine, but from forum members favorable to bear reintroduction, who I know more or less.
If any of you can prove me that their author doesn't want them o be used in such article, I will do it.
But meantime may I also ask you to prove me that all SP pictures are yours too.
It blows me away how tightly wound some people are! This is a great article, and the pictures are great, whosever they are. We do not need copyright "police" on this sight.Stick with what you're good at Nartreb, which to me, by looking at your profile,is climbing. Nice job Visentin.
Thanks Imontop for the comment. Yes, pity that this picture stuff looks to some people more important than the content itself.. it took me a while to write it, I hope it will break some prejudices about bears.
It's obvious it's Photoshop. Who cares?! It illustrates what the author is writing about.
or does there seem to be a sudden surge in
"copyright cops" on SP??? Please, put me in
with the group of people who fail to get our
shorts bunched up by viewing legitimate photos.
