Firstly, both your photos and illustrations are amazing and I like them. And your 'hoto-manipulations', as well :) As for your question - I have feeling that is similar to yours: something in between, fifty/fifty. Given that images are done perfectly well.

I guess here in stock photography, any manipulation make sense. The target of your pictures are mostly professional graphic people and designers and they do not care the purity of the proces but suitability of the picture to fullfill their need.

I prefer to realize photography, but in many cases I am attracted to those graphic elaborations that can transform and improve a photo in those aspects that could hardly be captured by the simple use of the camera. Your portfolio is fantastic! I have already noted it before.

I love your leaf-tie. I have noticed it before. I think the in-between is very good.

Thank you all very much! You are so kind:) I also believe that the suitability of the picture matters most, regardless of the creation process method.

No wonder two of them got so many downloads. They are perfect for so many purposes! :)
I like doing the same thing, combining bits and pieces from different photos. But I'm not that good. Not yet.

I do a little of all three (illustrations, mix, photographs) but I am just a beginner. However, they seem to all sell equally so far. I guess its like Midou3 said, "suitability of the picture to fullfill the buyers need."

Always an interesting question. There is a distinct difference. I am very old school professional photography and stick with it. I tried this illustration stuff but just got tired of basically messing with my work which sells very well as it is. However, as your work shows, the results of messing around with images pays off for some and the results are quite stunning. For me to do it now you'd have to glue me down in front of my computer.

It's always a good question! I'm an illustrator and I create only illustration, but the world around me is full of photographs, so I think they sell better than illustration!
