Hey Tarek I was not bashing you at all..:+}

I think forums are great and we should learn as much as we can.. It is a never ending process..
I love reading about every kind of technique and that is the only way you can develop your own technique for sure.
It just credit should go where credit should go... My influences are and have been the dragan type threads also...:+}
I learned everything I know through the Internet ,VTC's, Forums,Books etc...
Even a lot from some one new just experimenting.
Lighting,Photography,Photoshop has endless possibilities.
I was thinking about the guys that do 3D stuff and I could not even imagine trying to learn something like that specially when photoshop still has mysteries...

In any case maybe my post sounded to harsh. That John Parker does have good skills no doubt about that.. Just does not looked refined maybe.

To be honest, i just learn all retouching and photoshop as you said from internet and forums and book,...etc.

But to be honest, why i learn them? to achieve something or try to have a different look myself or just i don't know how to have my own? and most important i don't work professionally, most here are doing weddings and fashion and working for agencies or so, but i work for myself only, and landscapes is my main aspect.

Re: John parker style

Ray Bayer also has a similar look; maybe a tad more surreal. Like the look, but a lot of photogs don't. To eaches own.

Re: John parker style

to be honest the work snook said is totally awesome (lorettalux)

the work of John Parker in my opinion is way different, but not impressive to me

Re: John parker style

I guess you are interested in his People works?
His other stuff is interesting but a lot was sent out for retouching I believe b/c I saw some of those images in a Big Retouching agency. The HSBC stuff.
