I did not oblige as I didnít really understand how to do it in an undetectable way. I thanked the guy for his brilliant comment.

I had a similar remark from someone else, who felt layering was cheating. I had a laugh, as later on he was using a layer to replace a bland sky. He didnít do it very well and on top of that, he oversaturated the sky with too much blue, unattractive. I didnít say anything as I didnít want to destroy his post.

It can work, if itís carefully done

Your a professional photographer Jeff and I really value your opinion
It can indeed work very well, it's just not what I would call photography. It is however very much art in itself
Me is a tog though and it's not something I choose to do.
I'm of the get it right in camera. Use editing to bring out the best in the photo but not put in what wasn't there
