I haven't taken a great, investigative interest: I have seen some of it here and there (not as print) and it only says manipulation skills to me. That isn't what photography, to me, is all about. I simply don't see the point of juxtaposing all manner of things that make little or no logical sense (to me) at all. Because one can doesn't mean that one should. I have no doubts as to his skills, only their application.

In photography, I really do believe in the notion that simplicity means more focussed thought rather than contrived thought. No, I'm not saying that a shot of a blank sky says more than WYSIWYG!

I don't necessarily disagree with the simplicity stance, well done simple images usually are quite strong. However, when I look at manipulated images they aren't really much different to me than paintings with a strange concept, or a book like Lord of the Rings with creatures that don't and have never existed, or a science fiction movie that breaks every physics law we know. It doesn't have to reflect reality to be enjoyable, just needs to be done well.

Looks like his computer or videocard can't handle the large file while he was moving it around at his screen. Restarting PS might help.

The taste paradox--everyone has good taste. These pictures don't do a lot for me, but others may find them fascinating. Wouldn't it be a boring world if we saw all the same way?

Not if I were the only snapper in the world and everybody liked my stuff!

I could live with that quite happily.
