Photography like painting could reproduce the impression given by reality. But that is not necessary. The photography learned to lie long before the era of digital cameras and Photoshop had started. From the early 1860s photo manipulation (retouching) is considered as an allowable and desirable way to improve a picture or photograph.
Describing this photo, SunCat writes: `Not an official nude beach, but the locals are very nude tolerant‘. All his photostream is full of wonderful shots and definitely deserves attention.
Nice image, but it can be improved, of course. A month ago or something I came across the site promoting the book called ‘The World’s Best Nude Beaches and Resorts’.
The book was compiled by an international team of writers and photographers and published in the UK by Lifestyle Press Ltd. This book undoubtedly might be interesting and helpful. But take a look at the cover of this exciting and modern guide.
Peer at the photo at the bottom and compare it with the first one.
I shall not guess what image is original and who holds the rights to it. (I don’t know whether the author has given a permission to use and manipulate his photo.) I just want to say that one of these images is distinct from reality reflected in another.
