  1. Richard,
    your image does engage with its texture, mood, composition. in that respect it is for me a work of art. however it raises for me the somewhat academic question of what constitutes a photograph.

    • Two responses to what constitutes a photograph. In this case the image was made by a “photographic process” by light hitting a photosensitive material to record an image, and subsequently manipulating and combining those images. So in a technical sense, it is surely a photograph. More broadly I am interested in creating images rather than simply making photographs. If the image elicits an emotional response it is successful regardless of label applied to it.

      Thanks for looking and for commenting.
