i think the creative discussion is slightly off topic, and personally my opinion on creativity is no different than what the dictionary states... "relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas in the production of artistic work."
Littlewolf, you might be mistaken that someone arriving at a novel idea by accident is not creative. After all, there are those who believe that works of genius are produced by accidents. It's all about how often you can 'chance' upon these... accidents.
I think this creativity discussion can be brought back on topic. Honestly, how creative are we being by trying to make film-like images out of digital photographs? They are 2 seperate things, and they both have good and bads. It's almost as if we arent contented with with an orange and spend far too much time trying to make it into an apple, when frankly we should be capitalizing on the benefits of the orange instead.
