I entered this picture once in a “sky” contest on F*****. A traumatic experience. One of my competitors (who was also an admin of the group, voted for his own picture, and eventually won the competition) wrote a public post saying it was “photoshoped retarded”. I’m no saint, but I took this picture long before I could “photoshope” (and even now I don’t know what “retarded” means): foreground cropping let aside, this picture rolled straight out of my camera...
Nothing can beat reality!

Sherry and I both wrote to the person in question. I know what she wrote, and it was much more spirited than my mail, which went like this:

“R*b,

A good friend
(Sherry, of course!) drew my attention to a recent post of yours alleging that my contribution to the "One Comment" Sky competition was "photoshoped retarded".
I haven't the faintest idea what "retarded" means, but I can assure you that the picture wasn't in any way "photoshoped". Apart from some cropping, the picture is exactly as it came out of my camera (for details, see the EXIF data). At that time, I still used iPhoto vs.2 with its rudimentary editing features; what iPhoto did, and does, offer is the possibility to return to the original upload anytime.
To be quite sure, I have checked the original version, and can be very definite: there has been no color, contrast, exposure, or other tweaking. It was just a beautiful sky –with a little too much foreground...

That "Photoshop" is an abusive word on Flickr was new to me. However, your off-topic remark in the voting thread was obviously meant to disqualify my picture. I won't say it is better than #9, and I suppose an administrator is entitled to a certain arbitrariness, but I wonder about your lack of distance. "Winning by slander" –if that appeals to you, please go ahead. Otherwise, I must ask you to put things straight.

Your Flickr profile reveals you have seen much of the world, but you clearly haven't seen the Alps from our balcony.

Best regards, etc.”


Sherry left the group instantly –I’m still in it! :-)
