On Little beauty: Nordin Seruyan's macro images article (352 comments in total)

Way too much Photoshop in there for my taste, and concern about what had to be done to the subjects to construct those images.

In reply to:

B1ackhat: If you love nature, then leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures. This reminds me of the article regarding the incredible, one-of-a-kind, massive wild boar - that some buffoon shot and killed. These are simply expressions of human greed, not a love of nature.

If you're referring to the so-called "Hogzilla", keep in mind that wild hogs aren't native to the US and they cause terrible damage to native ecosystems here, so hunting them is necessary.

On Photoshop Gradient Tool: Blending Images article (223 comments in total)

Thanks! I've been wanting to learn more about the gradient tool, and you've done a really nice job of explaining its potential and how to get using it for more stuff.

I just read some of the comments about this, and apparently there are a lot of people who don't realize that many people use Photoshop for stuff other than photo optimization. The technique in this article can come in very handy when one is making composite illustrations for publications and other creative endeavors. Nothing wrong with photo manipulation either, as long as it isn't presented as being out-of-camera results. The article is of potential use to many people, and I thank the author for it.
