I'm not sure the first is even semi-fetish, but lines blur so quickly these days. I don't know if I would have liked it nearly so much if it were a true silhoutte, actually.
I've returned to look at the last three several times. I've always been something of a purist - only recently have I started doing more than just cleaning dust on digital images. These I like. I thought for quite a while about whether they'd be as effective as "straight" images - but I think not. They'd be good, but the manipulation gives them an old, almost "other-worldly" sense. I like them a lot, especially grouped like this.
Again, good stuff.
BTW - I'd be real interested in reading how you did the manipulations, if you're willing to share.
