I've heard cliffs like that described as 'castellated', (castle-like).
so how exactly are these fake?
abraxas, thanks. I'm not sure I've ever heard the term "castellated." I've learned a fair amount about the plants, animals and pre-Columbian history of the Southwest, but next to nothing about the geology. So much to learn, so little time.
I understand your viewpoint, flea77, but I don't feel that way. My father had a darkroom when I was growing up and I learned my way around in it. I don't have one and don't want one, so it's digital or nothing.
And if you take a picture that is in color with black and white film---this is also fake. There is no difference, I believe, in shooting a color scene with B&W film which then converts it to black and white in the camera, or converting it digitally in Photoshop from a color image.
Sorry, film fans. It's the final image result that matters in my opinion.
