Actually, there are many people who do not consider Jerry a photographer -
they consider him an artist who uses photography in creating his imaginative
images. Were this not so, Jerry would not have to argue so loudly, as he
does, that he is a photographer.

And Sonny was NOT putting up that image as his latest photograph - he was
putting it up to show what neat things he could do with Photoshop - BIG

Sonny, are you there?

I see no difference between what Sonny did in his
picture and what Jerry Uelsmann does with his except
that one is done in the dark room, and one is done on
a computer. I believe most would agree that Jerry is a
photographer.  I think that if the elements you use
are photographic elements that originally came from a
camera it is a photograph.
