Just dropping in to tell you I'll be on vacation for two weeks without internet access. I'll be back with photos and another week off for sorting through them and dong some manips again.
From Photomanipulated's Gallery
My Apologies + FeaturesFirst off, I wanted to apologize for neglecting Photomanipulated for the last few weeks. I was highly frustrated with everything and ready for a holiday that everything seemed a chore. So I removed myself for a while, then I went on holidays and now I'm back in action, finally!
For all those of you who like our Manip Challenges, there will be a new installment in the coming days
But now, on to our features for September, all of these are from Photomanipulated

Tutorial Treasury 03In the Tutorial Treasury, you will find tutorials geared towards Photomanipulators and some that will deal with a broader subjects, such as lighting, colour etc. The tutorials will be from dA as well as from all over the web and in each episode, there will be 3 to 6 tutorials for your reading pleasure (any more than that I guess no one will have time to read anyway). If you find any good ones, shoot me a note so I can include them in the next installment!
Create this beautiful treehouse artwork using a combination of photo manipulation and painting techniques. Find out how to easily draw a surreal-looking tree easily using the Brush tool, clouds from scratch, and more! You’ll learn all these techniques in this Photoshop tutorial.

Of Copyright + Premades
Disclaimer: I'm no lawyer, I do not work for deviantArt, I'm merely someone who has been doing photomanips for quite a while and has taken the time to read quite a few articles on the topic. The views expressed hereunder are mine alone. They do not reflect any "official dA opinion" nor are they to be taken as "legal advice".

Contest + FeaturesAbsence
I haven't been online much lately - actually, all I have done the past weeks was to upload some stock over at kuschelirmel-stock (and set up a contest - more on that below). I haven't even logged into this account since late September
So, just in case that happens again, if you need to get a hold of me, please send your note to kuschelirmel-stock as well.
Stock Use Contest
I am holding a "use my stock and win great prizes" contest over at my stock account - I would so love to see a lot of entries! It runs until January 1st and the only "theme" is that you use my stock
Some of the prizes offered are points (over 3000 points all together) and exclusive stock, for example:
Something to Think About + FeaturesStats & Competition
I haven't been around much lately, but that doesn't mean I'm gone. I could never leave this place behind, it is so chock full of inspiration and beauty. Things that are sometimes hard to come by "in real life". But it is also a mirror of "real life" as there is the constant competition, the drive to to better than last time, better than the others, more than anyone else... measured in faves, watchers, comments whether you like it or not.
Personally, I like stats. It's just the way my brain works And aside from that, I do get a kick out of seeing one of my works getting more faves / comments than another one. It's thrilling when you hit the zeitgeist (or however you wanna call it). And if you are trying to sell your art, hitting that zeitgeist is invaluable. I do however think that some people are way too focused on those numbers.
After all, what does a pageview mean? It means sommeone clicked your name. it doesn't mean he stopped to
News + (late) FeatureMaybe (hopefully ) some of you were wondering where I had disapeared to - the answer is Lago di Garda
[view from Rocca di Manerba - click to enlarge]
It was a nice, relaxed vacation (if you don't count the traffic jams on the way back over the Brenner - next time, we'll drive through Switzerland like we always do) - just one week, but the weather was (surprisingly) good and the relaxation-effect was enormous. I think that may be to blame on good food and drink
Anyway, before I went on my vacation, the "In Roman Times" Contest was concluded and I actually forgot to distribute the prizes I had promised Sorry!!! Better late than never - and now without further ado:
In Roman Times Contest - More Intermediate / Advanced

:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)
Spring has sprung and April showers have started raining down here at HQ.
Winter rain makes me want to crawl back into bed, get a hot cup of coco, and read a book all day. But there’s something different about April showers...
Maybe it’s because it’s less cold outside, or that the days are longer, but springtime rain makes me want to play in puddles.I want to go outside and smell the fresh air, and I just feel rejuvenated. Spring is a time for me to dust off old projects and start new ones. Forget New Years, April's when I get inspired!
I want to hear from you!
Do you play in the rain?
Does spring inspire you?

Yippee!! I received my 2nd DD, and I'm still completely shocked.
Thank you again to Flobelebelebobele for suggesting my work, your amazing. And of course to Aeirmid for awarding me the DD. I was so overwhelmed, that it is currently impossible for me to thank everyone individually for all the faves. And to all of my lovely new watchers, a massive thank you goes out to you too!

Eye-catching feature and two photographerHi Everybody ,
today I want you to show my personal eye-catcher of the half of september.
I saw so many amanzing works that I decided to do this feature right now
and not at the end of september.
At the end of september I'll plan to show amazing works from my wonderful friends and watchers
I do communicate often during the days.
And I also want you to show photos from two photographers.
I hope you enjoy them too because they are different, emotional and
I think they deserve attention.
So enjoy my eye-catcher and also the wonderful shots .
