Photomanips for BeginnersWhat is a photomanipulation?Photomanips for Beginners4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
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

Please, be mine
Unable to love you makes me cry
A demon from darkness I am
An outcast throughout the land
Why is it forbidden like time within the sand?

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
Listen To The WhisperListen To The Whisper Of The Eternal WindListen To The Whisper2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As It Gently Touches Your Ear;
Guiding You Through The Forest Of Life
Your Friend; Your Companion; Your Seer.
Listen To The Whisper Of Verdant Leaves
Adorning The Sentinels Of Earth;
Silently Watching The Passing Of Time
Its Beauty The Blessing Of Birth.
Listen To The Whisper Within The Heart
Where Soft Emotions Caress Its Beat;
Let Its Wisdom Flow Right Over Your Soul
And Dormant Love It Will Entreat.
Listen To The Whisper, All Three Of Them
Embrace And Entwine Deep Within;
And When They Merge Within Your Soul
A New Pathway You Will Begin
My NameMy name, does it not remind you of anything in particular?My Name2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
My actions, do they not strike you as familiar?
The times you cried over me,
Do you not remember?
The days you hid from me,
Is forgetting what you prefer?
Let me remind you who I am.
I am the creatures in your closet,
I am the memories you forget and deposit,
I am the screams of terror and fright,
I am the thing that makes you afraid of the night.
My name is Fear,
I'll see you tonight.
