Dear Diary
Dear Diary,
I ate a sandwich today. I realized for the first time that one does not use a spoon to eat them. I was at the deli and I ordered my usual, a turkey breast with salmon, bacon, and teriyaki sauce, sat down and began to eat, spoon in hand. The man next to me turned and said, "You know… You don't use a spoon to eat sandwichs…"
This blew me away. All that I had known: destroyed. My world became swirling mist of the unknown. Every fact I thought I knew suddenly came into question. The way of the universe died that day.
The man grew concerned about the glazed look I had while I was shaking uncontrollably in my chair. I snapped to, spoon still in my grasp. Then I stabbed him with it. A lot.
Thanks for ruining my day, asshole.
Dear Diary,
Today was unusual. I went to the super market and the cashier winked at me. I mean, it's good to be winked at by such a beauty of a person, but I didn't think it was very appropriate. Flattered, I gave a small sign of rejection, whi

A while back, I stumbled upon a section around here where deviantART actually defined what they consider a photomanipulation to be. Their definition of photomanipulation is where you take two or more photos (textures don't count) and put them together to make something entirely new. I recall they were also comparing the photomanipulation category to the Digital Art>Miscellaneous category, and explained when to use which one.

A long time ago, I "manipulated" a stock photo of a girl, where I edited the colors, the contrasts, heavily edited the skin and eyes, etc. and eventually, somebody reported it to dA as being in the wrong category, as I had placed it into Photomanipulation> People, and the mods promptly placed it into the Digital Art>Miscellaneous> People category. Which was fine with me, considering the fact that dA doesn't consider that type of deviation to be photomanpulation.

However, a lot of other people are unaware of this, and of course, I can't seem to find that the place where the topic was even being addressed (I've checked the Help and FAQs section and couldn't find anything). Either way, I've noticed quite a few "photomanipulations" lately where someone is just using high quality, popular stock photos of pretty girls and either simply applying a Photoshop action to it, or just slightly editing the colors and contrasts - and getting hundreds to 1,000+ favs for it, of course!

So, my fellow deviants, how do YOU define photomanipulation? And do you think that deviantART should add an extra category, entitled Photomanipulation>Minimal Effort, for the aforementioned deviations to get placed so that the hard working photomanipulators can get their art seen?


(Oh, and if anyone could link me to where deviantART defined photomanipulation, that would be awesome. Because as of right now, I'm thinking I dreamed it all up...)
