fauxtography...the art of the unreal

I didn't coin the phrase, one of my favorite writers did. His name is Will Campbell and you can find him on metblogs as well as on his own blog [sic]. He actually is owner and creator of the "fauxtography" flickr group. Anyone can join. Its a home for those photos that are faked and we aren't ashamed to admit it.

I was working the image and not happy with the sky as it completely blew out and lost all detail. I used the cloud tool, gradient tool and added a sky that is completely fake. I did it on purpose. It was fooling around looking to just work on that skill set. It is what it is and in the group pool.

Anyway, it has a name, it has a home. Fauxtography.
