Photomanips for BeginnersWhat is a photomanipulation?Photomanips for Beginners by kuschelirmel
Photomanipulations are images that have been composed of two or more photographic elements to create something new.
This is what the gallery description states. But what does it mean?
It means that a photomanipulation is based on photographs.
Not sketches scanned in (like line art for example) or screenshots from a video game. However, if you scan a photograph or for example dried flowers, it would be considered a photograph; while a photograph taken of line art still remains a sketch and is not consiered a photograph. Video game screenshots are copyrighted images btw and as such cannot be used at all.
It means that you need to use more than one photograph.
Retouching work as well as work that uses brushes or texture overlays only to "spice up" a photo that was taken by yourself(!) should be submitted to Photography > Darkroom, while work that uses stock images (i.e. images that you did not take yourself) should be

Pleines et généreuses,
Embrassant l'infinité du monde,
Que j'ai emprunté la Barque des Horizons.
J'ai voyagé de l'aube au déclin d'une civilisation,
Affrontant les Ténèbres ophidiennes,
Au rythme de la grandeur et de la décadence des hymnes
Qui autrefois flattaient les dieux.
Suivant le cours du Lotus,
Jusqu'aux sources célées,
Traversant les terres de la Colère,
Jusqu'au Pays de l'Arc,
Le Temple et le Trône me recouvrent de leurs ailes,
Dans un pays où les Rois sont Dieux,
Et les Dieux, Mortels.
It is on a starry sea, its undulating sensuality,
Full and curvacious,
Contemplating the infinity of the world,
That I went aboard the Great Horizon's boat.
I traveled from the dawn till the close of a civilization,
Fighting against a ribbon of darkness,
At the rate of greatness and decay of the hymns
Which once flattered the gods.
Following the flow of the Lotus

A butterfly is a gentle word folded in two in search of an address of a single flower .. '
I will change style of photography. I am practicing and experimenting at the moment.
