      What does everyone think was going to replace traditional post processing of film. Processing software is now just the ‘digital darkroom ‘. how else would we be able to crop, adjust contrast, and sharpen digital photos. Those who choose to manipulate photos have done so for almost 100 years.

      Nice pictures and I partly agree with comment number 3.

      Even Nat Geo photographers come up with not so great images, despite the best equipment, knowledge & experience, which ultimately need a software rescue or polish.

      Original Nat Geo poster :

      Breath taking photography, Great post!

    • March 17, 2010 at 1:09 pm

      I don’t think too many professional photographers would deny that they “enhance” a lot of their work. As several people commented, it was being done well before Photoshop.

      But the comments that just say “photoshopped” are immature and only serve to antagonize and begin quarrels and comment exchanges that actually sort of ruin things. I enjoy reading comments that actually contribute to the posting but the nasty bickering ones really makes it unpleasant.

      I vote that inane comments like “Photoshopped” be deleted from the comments section as well as any comments that call other commenters names that aren’t nice.

    • March 17, 2010 at 12:58 pm

      I wish I could take photos like these and If that is not within my talents then I wish I could travel to all the places these photos were taken.

      You know, one thing that annoys the living crap out of me is these guys who come along and say things like “Photoshopped, all of them, i can tell by the pixels and having seen a number of photoshops in my day…”
      You are a rank idiot. Does this post say “No photoshopped images contained herein”?
      Does it even matter? Are the images beautiful or not?

      What’s your next step?
      “Haha LOL those were taken with a camera, they’re not the real thing”? Get a life all you fools who go “‘haha ‘shopped” like you have discoverd some grand fraud. What are you trying to achieve? Getting hired as a world renowned ” ‘shopped spotter”?

      The idea behind this post is to show some beautiful images. And secondly, are you now trying to discredit National Geographic as fraudulent? To what end? The Nobel prize in idiot photographic forensics?

      First go and achieve 1 billionth of what the janitor at National Geographic has achieved for this world before you even attempt a rudimentary display of intelligence. You couldn’t hit Mount Kilimanjaro with a your IQ if every point was a pellet from a shotgun. Do the rest of the world a favor and switch off your PC.

      The magazine you are “entertaining” yourself with is a 100 times more “‘shopped” than anything on this page.

      Flame over.

      Truly stunning and unique collection of photos, and whether they have been photoshopped or not, the scene in the photo is real and natural.

    • September 30, 2009 at 4:56 am

      Stunning photos,a great look at nature from an artist’s eye,well done!

      It’s so great for me who love National Geographic photos.

    • September 19, 2009 at 1:34 am

      LOL @ “The other guy”….. The photos are obviously shopped….

      Mianus is a town in Connecticut. Look it up. The locals pronounce it Meeyannis, but that’s just to keep the property values up. You and I know that it’s pronounced differently. More anatomically. The lower valve of the human boddaroni.

      The exquisite design inherent in nature surely makes us appreciate that there must have been an intelligent creator behind such marvels.

      The people who say things are photoshopped are usually trolls from 4chan.org.

      so stop obsessing over them and shut up and ignore them.

      Great photos

    • August 26, 2009 at 10:31 pm

      Lovely lovely incredible Life, captured – thank the god/desses – by highly skilled and motivated photographers. btw the comment 太漂亮了 from above, translated by WordMonkey, means “too beautiful” in Chinese.

    • August 23, 2009 at 9:52 pm

      Thanks, Andrew! I absolutely love National Geographic photos. It’s my dream that someday I’ll be behind one of their cameras. Seriously breathtaking.

    • August 16, 2009 at 3:40 pm

      Amazing photos! Does anyone know how much retouch is put in to these photos? (In general…)

    • August 2, 2009 at 8:07 am

      wow, amazing set! :o

    • August 1, 2009 at 10:36 pm

      Sucks to me see many photoshoped photos and (super)enhanced colors, even it’s astonishing pictures.

      Nevertheless, thanks for others real photos I’ve noticed.

    • August 1, 2009 at 9:21 am

      Bingo.. And heres the description from National Geographic:
      “Latvia—A long exposure blurs sea and sky into a minimalist backdrop for a crumbling Soviet-era military building near Liepãja. More than a decade after Moscow withdrew its forces from Latvia, such ruins litter the Baltic coast.”

      Slide through to this picture..

    • August 1, 2009 at 9:17 am

      The second one not photoshopped, as I see.. Just a long exposure.. I live nearby of this structure..

    • August 1, 2009 at 7:34 am

      oh yeah – and stop narking on about the “Shopped” comment s – all the comments saying how stupid the original one is are just as stupid… Don’t give the idiots an audience

    • August 1, 2009 at 7:31 am

      Agree with LookingfoWonder – the photos are stunning, but it’s often the commentary that makes a great blog – in future post fewer pics but add the background to the event – what, why, who, etc..

    • August 1, 2009 at 12:04 am

      by the way… You all tell the same joke on every photo blog out there (that’s a lot), and those of us who are sick of that ( eight year old incessant) joke are the dumb ones. Huh. In what way do you help your community? Not important, right? cause I’m stupid. Right.

    • July 31, 2009 at 11:59 pm

      There’s always one teenager who thinks that knowing something means knowing everything; that seeing one thing means I’ve seen it all. We all know that every photo blog has some kid commenting that he can “tell by the pixels”. We all know that none of them knows what that means, and many of us suspect that these kids don’t even bother to look at photos (‘shopped or otherwise). Get a job. Stop wasting time, kiddo.

    • July 31, 2009 at 11:23 pm

      Photos need some details like where they were taken and when, and some of them what exactly you are looking at. But overall they are good photos.

    • July 31, 2009 at 10:46 pm

      Great photos. I love the one of the man breathing fire. “That Guy” is a moron. I’m sure he goes to random websites and says that’s “photoshopped.” I see it all the time on photoblogs. I can’t stand morons like that. And yes people do photoshop some of their photos, but they have always “fixed” photos even before the computer was invented. Even though that is not always the case, in which I don’t think this is at all, it doesn’t even matter. You just hate the fact that you can’t take beautiful photos like this or any other for that matter. Keep posting photos like this they make my day. Thank you.

    • July 31, 2009 at 3:41 pm

      Everyone… don’t feed the trolls.

      Awesome shots!

    • July 31, 2009 at 8:02 am

      You stupid people need to realize that not everyone that says “photoshopped” is being serious. it is what is known as a joke, and quite the ongoing one on this here interweb thing. it is intended to get a rise out of the people who are too stupid to realize it is a joke. While some people may be serious when they say “shopped” on a post, the vast majority are just playing around because it is fun to be “that guy”.

      that being said, great collection of photos, nat, geographic is known for their spectacular photos, and these certainly do them justice.

    • July 31, 2009 at 1:50 am

      You stupid people need to realize that not everything is photoshopped, that the world can actually be that beautiful with out the help of a computer. just deal with that fact and and look at the beauty…

    • July 30, 2009 at 9:57 pm

      I love to take photos myself…but these are way beyond my talent and I love looking at them…it gives me a heart thumping joy thank you

    • July 30, 2009 at 9:25 pm

      Professional photographers use lightbox or similar to tweak or color correct a photo but that is by no means photo-shopping and a standard practice. They are amazing photos and thanks for linking them back to the originals made reviewing them event more interesting.

      The fisherman photo is the only one that puzzles me, how a shot with such extremes in exposure could be taken in one frame, but if taken over two shots then merged it is not just a photo but Art.

    • July 30, 2009 at 5:49 am

      Great pictures…”that guy” you should appreciate Andrew for all these beautiful pictures … !!! And white owl is just damn awesome !!! really amazing pictures..made my day..aswell ..great

    • July 28, 2009 at 8:54 am

      I don’t care if those pictures were taken by a thousand dollar camera or if it was edited in the Photoshop because, at the end of the day, one person did it.
      There is no Canon-Nikon-Leica-Sony-etc magic camera or a Photoshop’s sub-menu “Make this photo fantastic!!”.
      You need to have something different in you to be able to produce such images.
      Congratulations to the people, photographers and/or designers, that created those fantastic images.

    • July 26, 2009 at 8:32 pm

      National Geographic photographers use Leica digital cameras, which run in the thousands of dollars USD + tons of filters and other equipment. It’s possible that these AREN’T PhotoShopped: the equipment they use is like the Taj Mahal of photography equipment- way out of price range for the rest of us. TT_TT

      Using advanced filters and an excellent camera, producing shots like these IS possible- also, these are only the ones that made the cut. There may have been 20 or more similar shots which were flawed, and therefore not published.

      I vote that they weren’t shopped.

    • July 26, 2009 at 6:18 pm

      Thanks for posting these stunning shots. Pay no attention to what That Guy Says! Keep posting for the rest of us.

    • July 25, 2009 at 6:45 am

      Great attention to pattern, colors and texture, just like I like. Even simple things become amazing in these photos.

    • July 24, 2009 at 10:16 pm

      Photoshop processed or not, the images are stunning. Digital post-processing is a fact of life and is as much a part of the creative endeavor as seeking the image in the first place. The camera will never capture the range the eye can see and the mind can comprehend. Photoshop gives us the tools to bring out the beauty we saw, and inspire others around us. Great work!

    • July 24, 2009 at 7:17 pm

      I think it’s actually quite funny how the guy who put up the photoshopped comment is named “that guy”. Because he is “that guy” who makes the photoshop comment.

      Very cool photos. That elephant on the edge of the cliff is truly amazing.

    • July 23, 2009 at 4:58 pm

      Truly stunning photos. Just make sure you’re allowed to publish them. I did a similar thing and after one week Magnum contacted me and told me to remove all of them the same day, or else…

      Again, truly stunning photos.
