Other Peoples' Art OPA+Ricardo Liberato
Ricardo deleted the Bag Lady as OPA. This discussion is more important to me than the votes on the image.
Serious question: If you make a photo of a whole building carefully cropped or even cloned onto a blank canvass is that OPA?
If you do a study of a portion of the building is that OPA?
This Bag Lady is tiny portion that caught my eye of a very large billboard; why is this capture any different than a study of a window or a door? The window/door was created by someone else and you are simply taking a picture of their creation.
In the attached photo, the Bag Lady was "processed", the middle piece of a building is the RAW, and the second is a cropped and BW final image.
If I posted the BW image +Ricardo Liberato
would you also delete as OPA?
Aren't they all OPA; one by a graphic artist and one by an architect?
Thanks in advance for your participation.
