Re: Iris

Thanks, Craig. Your last one is very nice too. I have been tempted to buy plugins and add-ons several times but haven't. I like what some of them do but it always seems to be cheating for me. I have been using Photoshop since CS2 (Upgraded from PSE 3.0) with the tools that came in the box. When I see the results of a plugin or an add-on, I try to duplicate it. Sometimes it takes quite a while but gives a lot of satisfaction. And besides, since I'm retired I have a lot of time on my hands. I really enjoy all the submissions that are done, whether they are done with or without plugins and/or add-ons. I guess I'm just an old fashioned guy.

Re: Iris

gerry,

thank you

it is cheating. i shld be able to draw everything i see in my mind without any intermediate mechanical devices or means. sadly, my drawings look worse than a four year old's hanging on mommy's refridgerator. but, i've always enjoyed photography and owned cameras since i was a teenager and i also enjoy computers and art and a number of creative endeavors, and if cheating is the only way to get the results i see and want, then cheating it is

and yes, i know you arent accusing anyone here and i dont mean my response above to be taken as if you were accusing me. i mean it simply that it's the end result that matters, ultimately. whether one took 'shortcuts' or 'cheated' or whatever, is secondary, to me. i need and want a creative outlet. i cant draw worth a damn... well, maybe worth a damn but, i do have a good eye and the curse of the compassion to create, so, if i can scramble together a filter that i can use to then turn something into an aesthetic piece worthy of comment, then i'm all like an old cat i used to own when you petted him the right way, drools and deep purrs that could wake the dead so, i say, cheat to your heart's content and have a ball while doing it

but i can also admire the purest

and thank you, palms i was pleased with that one, too

Re: Iris

More cool stuff Craig. To Gerry; it's not cheating; think of plugins like you would brushes. They are tools. It's still takes a mind to use them. Like Craig, I can't draw a straight line either, but computers do that easily. lol

As a side note, one of the few C's that I got in College (graduated 3.53GPA by the way; others have done better; still others have done worse) was in Engineering Drafting (I hated freehand drawing; lol). Thank God I didn't have to know how to draw to be an Engineer. Maybe though, I would have been one for more then 10 years if I did though. lol
