Peter Lik Called Out by Photographers Over ‘Faked’ Moon Photo

Photographer Peter Lik is purportedly one of the bestselling landscape photographers on Earth, having sold a reported half a billion dollars worth of prints by 2015. He also claims to have sold a single print for $6.5 million in 2014, which would still be the world’s most expensive photo today. But one of Lik’s new prints is raising eyebrows and eliciting cries of “Photoshop!”

The photo and print at the center of it all is titled “Moonlit Dreams.” Lik’s website states that the photo was captured in the USA, and he’s currently selling 950 Limited Edition prints and 45 Artist Proof prints.
