    I guess that makes me guilty of something.
    We are all guilty of something (more or less ;-)
    But, I appreciate your "technique", it remaind me ths big "cordon bleu chef" when they arrange food on dishes or plates.
    Photographes are visual food, why not dress the borders nicely ?
    Borders are part of the visual experience....

    I started doing it to tease (or piss off?) Sanders McNew and honestly the first time I did it, it was a digital shot framed like film just to see if anyone could tell the difference.

    But now I change the borders to signify which media I use, small format, 120, big, etc.

    The browser can really mess up the shadow separation so I uploaded two versions. I am trying for a feeling of dark creepiness....

    Frank. I like film borders too. I know you actually know your shit and can handle a Crown Graphic so it doesn't bother me that yours fake.

    It does get my panties in a bunch though when digi-dorks add film borders and have no flying clue....

    Frank I'm immediately thinking... darkness with a hint of sadness. Great cover for a Irish folk album! Could you photoshop out the cameras;0

    I hate it when they leave a comment, "Nice Capture" -- makes me want to puke.

    Frank, Considering your stated objective, my suggestion would be to either lose the legs entirely (preferable) or show the feet.

    yeah it is a problem picture because I like it but they're either going to look "cut-out" (they are not, I've only done a global curve adjustment and a wee bit of burn and dodge) or I have to make them inky black... it's just too large a range.
