Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

My 83-year-old grandmother, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease, loves to sit on the front porch with her family.

With her in the photo is her younger daughter, my mom.

    immediately I saw this shot I thought absobloody fantastic - an unguarded moment, my favourite images. Then I read you description and realised your Grandmother's life is now one long unguarded moment.
    A shitty situation captured beautifully, captured with love. This is such a wonderful image ... well done.
