Nikon announced the winning entry to their amateur photography competition as photographer Chay Yu Wei and what an amazing snap it was too.
The trouble is that it didn’t take too long for everybody who viewed it to point out to Nikon it was a composite – the sort of thing you see all the time here in TheField. What also emerged was that the image had already appeared a year ago on Instagram. Oh dear!
To then really rub salt into the wound, just by chance we guess, Digital Photo #204, page 78, only provides a step-by—step guide to how to achieve the exact same image! Not unsurprisingly there have appeared a number of ‘copies’! LINK
