Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Very creative Chris. Love the off center crop. Textures are well played. Maybe I need to get Topaz.

  • Once again it payed off to break the rules. It was a big gamble and I didn’t think it would work but this has been a huge success! The Topaz plug ins are well worth the reasonable cost, I recommend them all. Most good plug ins are priced STUPIDLY HIGH! Topaz is great. Thanks so much for your great comment Rodney. Cheers.
