I'm not sure if anyone else has looked through the most recent ASLA Awards winners, but I found one of them to be a little questionable. 

When I first saw the GM House submission, it was obvious that there was a large amount of photoshopping that had taken place. This started a lively debate in our firm about what was real and what was fake, and more importantly, how much editing should be allowed in official award submissions. As we dug a little further, we found some of the 'original' images, proving that these were indeed photoshopped. You can see those here: http://www.riginikstudio.com/118038/2519110/gallery/alex-hanazaki-p...

It would be good to hear some other people's point of view on this topic.

Is there a policy on the amount of photo editing or enhancing that is allowed in award submissions? I looked through the National call for entries and the most detail I found was in the residential category that specified no montages or overlays.

Many of the other projects seem to have well-taken photos with very minimal enhancement, if any. I think ASLA needs to clarify a policy on this moving forward (if they haven't already) so the integrity of the winning projects isn't undermined in the future.

The only thing I could see was the mirrored pillows..what else?

Lets open this up to the community. GM House Photo Hunt?
