On the other hand, the relation between the drawing and the photograph was for a time a highly competitive one. Artists said they were able to depict battle scenes cameras without telephoto lenses were unable to capture. The fans of the photograph claimed these drawings lacked objectivity, the artist interposing his personality between event and public. Those on the side of the drawing claimed the photograph was too literal, filled within irrelevant detail. Some publications, like Leslie's Weekly,  published both photographs and illustrations on different pages of the same issue: an artist's rendering of a battle and a photograph of the place it had occurred.
