Eti Swinford 8/7/2005 5:14:54 AM

Thanks for the comments and congratulations from everyone! Much appreciated. For Mike, ALL parts of the image are my images in a composite. Nothing downloaded from anywhere! I do tend to play alot and have lots of fun doing it. #1686844

Mike M. Grogan 8/9/2005 12:45:15 PM

Sorry Eti no bad feelings meant, I like playing around with photo's myself, and I also have a lot of fun doing it, but what I'm trying to say is, are "composites" real photographs or not? some people may say yes but personally I don't think so, sorry. #1697797
