Danilo Piccioni March 30, 2005

I am sorry to disappoint you, but this is a composite of two pics, assembled in PS.
However, the fact that all of you thought that this was one original picture makes me understand I did a darn good job in PS with layers and transparency.
to have fooled you to believe it was in fact original.
TNX a lot to each and every one of you! #1215994

Danilo Piccioni March 30, 2005

TNX so much Friends!
I know Jill, I should send it to her, but I feel superior to anybody who put me down without even knowing me or my skills.
In other words, I don't really care if somebody tells me that I am a beginner, I know what I am and that is all that counts.
