comment What is the “round” tripod plate used for?
Thanks! You might be right. I didn't see any corresponding holes for the screws on the bottom of the head itself but screwing the set of screws further into the bottom of the head will make it more secure. I will add a new image to show where the screw comes up on the other side but i think that's what i need to do.

No doesn't really match. It almost seems redundant. The screw has a hexagonal nut in the middle that fits into the hole (see above) but the problem is that see is that if I have the plate there I don't think the screw protrudes enough for the head to have a good grip (3/4 of a turn) Just feels like it could loosen. The other issue is that the head rotates and it is easy to accidentally loosen it with the round plate in there. I might just take it out...

comment Is photomontage photography?
Thanks. My question was NOT about post processing of which I am a big fan. There is not doubt in my mind that however altered in post processing a photograph is still a photograph; a representation of something that has existed in the real word. What I meant by photomotage in my question has to do with creating a fictional reality from a myriad of photo clippings and other inputs then made to look real as if it in fact was reality. However, based on some comments and answer here I am reconsidering my view of photomontage.

Thanks @Stan. In my humble opinion all of these post processing techniques you described are without exception a part of photography whether it enhances the artistic vision, creates mood,etc., In the end the product is still a representation of something that has existed in reality. The images I was wondering about are those that have never existed but were created from various clips and digital techniques to look like reality. These productions are often well crafted and interesting; a form of art without a doubt. But it's real vs not real. Is the "not real" still a photograph?
