    Wonderful photoshop skills!

    Clear proof that one can make great "photos" without using a camera.

    Yup! This is digital art.

    Reminds me of a colleague who download images and then put them together to make images, as well as video clips.

    His D70 have not been touched for a year! I suggested that he should sell his D70 and buy more rams! A lot more useful to him.

    Student, I kind of get the message that you are trying to say here.
    But i'd rather not draw a conclusion to my own.
    Why not be a little more straight and elaborate what you really mean?

    I thought I was very clear!

    This image is a wonderful example of digital art. Putting several images together to make a beautiful composite.

    But as you had indicated, the images were not yours, but those taken by others. So, in the process of making this image, of spending 12 hours on the computer, you did not need to use your camera. But like my colleague (a real person BTW, not an imaginary person), the act of making photographs was not necessary. My colleague scanned in images he like, or download them from the web, then, just like you, made composite images, as well as video clips. But he really is not a photographer. He talked about photography. But he was wasting his money on his D70. He needed more Ram. Hence my suggestion to him to sell his D70 and buy more rams.

    Making composites is not new. One of the greatest photographer in this genre is Jerry Uelsmann. But Jerry took all the photograhs himself. Each of the images he used for his composites were art pieces in itself. Then in his darkroom he made surrealistic images that, to many, are not equalled, even today with the digital process. But few would doubt Jerry as an excellent photographer.

    Digital art is a valid art form, as you have shown. Just like any other new medium developed through the ages. But it is plainly obvious that one do not have to be a photographer to make digital art.

    This is a very good effort. Extremely good.

    Its not a matter of being a good photographer or not. Now given the amount of post processing that photographers have to go thru. Having this skill is a plus. And a very good plus at that.

    A digital artist does not have to be a photographer.

    A photographer does not have to be a digital artist, but it will help alot now that digital is the most popular media.

    Thank you for summarising my thoughts so succinctly.

    Just to clarify. I am all for digital art like any other art form.

    But Octane69 put it clearly.

    A digital artist does not have to be a photographer, and vice versa.

    It will be ideal to be a great photographer and a great digital artist all in one. But if I have to choose, I used to say, definately, a great photographer, but lately, I am not so sure.

    ever though of doing DI full time? You look like you are good enough to give some other DI pro a good run for their money.
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time
