I'd been ribbed by some guy on the HAMB about what actually constitutes art - basically, he tore into me for altering photos & calling it art. Bob sent me a message explaining that the same guy was the reason Bob hasn't posted on their forum in a while.
I gotcha now. Yeah, I know what you're saying about that tight little group on the HAMB. Just this last Friday show there was controversy about someone who was accused of passing off a photoshopped photo as original art, followed by some negative comments. I believe the accusations were unfounded. I've posted many times on the Friday art show, and unless you're part of the clicke, then your work goes generally unnoticed, with hardly a comment. I'm not nearly as talented as most of those contributors, but a pat on the back for doing an admirable job is always appreciated.
