There's something I've been noticing that really puzzles me on Deviant Art. I just downloaded a png someone graciously shared with everyone and when I looked at the stats I saw 62 downloads yet only 18 likes and 2 comments (only 1 of which had a link to the png being used). 

Maybe I'm old school but I don't think it's too much trouble for me to like an image I download and leave a comment with a link showing how I used it. Just me I guess!

A big thanks and hug to all those who share.

So what am I doing here?

I spend most of my time traveling the streets of Philadelphia, Pa in my wheelchair taking photos. I also enjoy playing with photos always in search of creating a nice combination Hdr/Painterly effect.

Recently I purchased Topaz's Impression and while okay it renewed my interest in a program called Photo-Reactor. So Impression goes to the scrap heap and I'm playing with Photo-Reactor again. I am going to use this gallery as my playground for Reactor and also possible start a stock gallery of Philadelphia photos but one thing at a time.

I don't really know how to describe Photo-Reactor, are there programs that are better? Certainly! Are there easier programs to use? Most definitely! So why use it then? It lets me explore and break the boundaries that most other programs don't. Instead of supplying what I call canned soup effects and plug-ins it gives you no effects but it does give you all the tools to create as far as your mind can carry you.

While it lacks in areas of masking and composition building, it excels in the manipulating of individual objects and photos to create a unique look and feel. As I tinker it becomes a nice final touch when trying to create a unique painterly style. I'm sure the developer would cringe at the thought of me using it for that but it's something I want to explore for awhile.

If you see something of yours that you don't think I've manipulated enough for your tastes, please message me and I'll remove it. I meant no harm I am just looking for various photos to try the new v-boxes I'm creating. The result of some of the effects are quite drastic depending on the image.
