  • Shocked To Win the Dreamstime Assignment

    by Wisconsinart | 8th of May, 2013

    So here we all are, slavishly adding new images to an ever increasing pile of creativity and opportunity. But how many times now is the same subject being captured from all perspectives, and how long will it be before we can't add a truly "new" image any more? As a 3D... More
