I admire the images and the skill it takes to produce them and I'm sure that placed in a gallery, they would sell well, but it's not my cup of pixels.

Great pick Erik has an amazing portfolio and I’ve even told others to take a look. For the casual or hobby photographer like myself most of us can’t comprehend how much effort goes into these very complex shots. Keep up the great work Erik you truly inspire!!!

Beautiful images and very well done, but they are not photographs.
I would call them rather photographic illustrations

He is one of the best candidates for the Photographer of the Year distinction. His work is outstanding.

Beautiful work. And, yes, they are indeed photographs.

I agree with Laughing Cow. The work is beautiful, without question, but they are not photographs they are fine art images. You cannot take most of these images in one frame in camera which to me defines a photograph. Multiple images combined constitutes artwork and that is valid, but let’s label them properly as art pieces and not photographs.
