I could only hope to have the artistic vision, skill and patients to do anything like these. Thanks for posting Greg.

To me none of that is photography anymore. In my opinion it has flown well over the bounds of post processing and deep into the heart of graphic skills. For me, this is artwork that uses some photographic elements although good work regardless.

MA is correct in a sense, it isn't the classic one off shot with PP to bring forward sharpness, color and levels however...To produce this level of work requires much photographic skill and vision in many cases. It's all fine and dandy to hack, chop, cut and paste elements into a composite piece but if it's just elements thrown together without thought to the final vision, things can go wrong fast. Lighting plays a large role in successful delivery of the imaginative vision required to produce work such as this as it must be consistent and believable in the end result. My proff in college was a master at this kind of work and made some serious coin on the side from artistic sales but he was a gifted and highly skilled photographer not to mention a total PS guru. Graphic skills are a large part of it but without a sound understanding of the photographic process, the result will be far less than dramatic and quite lame in most cases.
