Business / Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

I have resurrected this old thread as I have been experimenting more with post processing lately including using textures overlaid on images to add some additional character and interest to shots. It is fun and allows some interesting effects that takes otherwise ordinary photos into a new direction. And it allows me to use photos that I otherwise might be inclined to reject.

Photo. contributions by others welcome.

And in this one I wanted to accentuate the vertical nature of the trees by applying motion effect vertically.
