How far is too far?

Art is subjective it always has been, Photography too to a certain extent.  Most of us Photographers nip, tuck, clone and cut using Photoshop but at what point does a piece of work stop becoming a photograph and start becoming a piece of art?  This was the subject explored by John Humphrey in his talk ‘Creative Approaches to Photography’ where his love of High-key and simplistic images verged more on the side of art than photography however, like it or loathe it he uses imagination and creativity to turn a seemingly mundane photograph into something interesting even beautiful and for that you have to commend him.

So, for those who have never dared to play with the numerous filters available on your editing software – have a go, you never know what you might end up with.
