no doubt it's a DD. this is absolutely perfect. it's like looking at an immense serene flowing river. all is quiet and beautiful and peaceful on the surface,... but what lies beneath it's dark depths is mysterious and unknown.
Really really good work.. but I dont belive it to be a traditinal digital photography. What I meen is that the rules are if you alter a photograph, use PS or other software in the sense of airbrushing any sorts of airbrushing and other tools like clone stamp and things like that... Then it really is a Photo manipulation isnt it? And I dont know if this isnt altered to much so its a photomanip. If it isnt and the original photo looks similar to this than I lift my hat of to you..
Would love to see the original shot with the exif info...
Thank you. I understand your point, I was undecided which category to put this in as work was done on the hair to give it a sort of unrealistically smooth look. I wouldn't call it a manipulation though, when choosing which category to submit something there's an information button & the definition of a manipulation on this site is "Photomanipulations are images that have been composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new", this hasn't been composed of two or more images.
