Computer Manipulation

There are many who said upon the advent of the digital camera
age that photography died.. I disagree very strongly with this
statement !! I think the digital age opened up photography into
a whole new art form.. the fact that the average person can now
take an image and change it so dramatically, all in the computer,
is a wonderful thing........ Images are made that are beautiful, thought
provoking and very different... Images as art .. images to please...
images to make us wonder... These images would be impossible without a
computer, the digital image and a persons imagination....

The digital camera is today so sophisticated I challenge anyone to
tell the difference between the traditional film produced photo
to the digitally produced one.. However, it's still garbage in garbage out...

I hope you enjoy these fantasies of my imagination....

This started out as a picture of one hawk.. I gave him a friend

Mountains in my backyard - Maple Ridge - never looked so blue

This is a statue in the snow- I changed it to a negative image
and then added some highlights around the base..

Much cloning of planes and changing of color spectrum

I did this one as a protest against WAR.. all photos were
talen on a Remembrance Parade - its was a very sad occasion
Now this one was fun.. made the mans head with photoshop - just
pulled out the shape from a single picture.. then carefully placed this
mans dream into his head.. can you find his dream?

And a Rocket Ship too:-) All from parts and bits

Thsi was my entry into a competition on Urban Sprawl...
The Subdivision.... It all started with a photo of one small house.

At our camera club we have a monthly competition...
This is my friend Ross playing his guitar..
I added a few things...

I dont like hunting.. does it show??

The Devil in Miss Jones.....

What a storm this was !!!!!

A bit of added color to the veils for this
graphic image...

And a screen layer over the Shout...
