JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Photographer Ari Wibisono denied manipulating the photo atmosphere at Kemayoran, Jakarta Center, with background Mount Gede Pangrango.

He admitted that he was ready to prove it by showing the original photo and the camera.

This was conveyed by Ari in response to the accusation Arbain Rambey, the senior photographer, that the photo was “sticky”.

Netizens responded to Arbain’s accusation on social media.

“I will show the original photo from the camera and compare it to the results of the pro posts that have aired on Instagram,” said Ari to Kompas.com, Wednesday (17/2/2021) night.

“All my data is unpacked to restore my reputation in the world of photography,” added Ari.

Ari feels Arbain’s accusation for his work has seriously tarnished his reputation and career in photography.

Ari wants an apology from Arbain.

“This (Arbain’s accusation) made my name and career really tarnished. I started the world of photos recently by learning via Youtube. I can’t afford to do courses, self-taught, “added Ari.

“I want an apology from Arbain,” he added.

Ari has also provided clarification via his Instagram account @ wibisono.ari. He gave an explanation and uploaded a number of other photos to prove there was no photo manipulation.

In the news at Kompas.com previously, Ari said, the photo was taken on Wednesday morning, from a location in Kemayoran.

He admitted that he deliberately wanted to depict the city of Jakarta against the backdrop of Mount Gede Pangrango.

The sight of the mountain, he said, indicates that Jakarta’s air quality is clean.

“Deliberately hunting on a motorbike via Kemayoran flyover towards Mount Sahari. Passing the bridge, I stopped,” he told Kompas.com.

“From 06.20 WIB to 07.00 WIB, the mountain still looks handsome. Approaching 07.30 WIB, the mountain begins to disappear slowly,” he added.

Arbain’s allegations

Photographer Arbain previously commented on Ari’s photo uploaded on the Twitter account of the DKI Jakarta Environment Agency @dinaslhdki.

This is a sticky photo. To get Pangrango that big, you need a long telephoto then take a photo from afar. Looking at the comparison of the front and rear cars, obviously you don’t use a long telephoto, “wrote Arbain on his Twitter account @arbainrambey.

Arbain believes that the size of Mount Gede Pangrango in the photo should not be that big if you look at the size of the road.

I’m not saying the mountain doesn’t exist, I’m saying the size of Mount Pangrangonya is not that big in the field of the photo if the road below has that perspective,” he said.

The mountain’s perspective to the foreground doesn’t connect with the perspective of the visible cars. Mount to the foreground is crazy compaction (long telephoto discarded). Meanwhile, the perspective of the cars appears to be using a short telephoto, “Arbain analyzes.

“These are the best tweets for the mountain photo polemic:
The mountain’s perspective to the foreground doesn’t connect with the perspective of the visible cars. Mount to the foreground is crazy compaction (long telephoto discarded). Meanwhile, the perspective of the cars seems to be using a short telephoto, ” wrote Arbain.

“The end of this discussion is simple … indeed the background becomes a patch because of the heavy digital processing as in the so-called original photo …,” add him.
