Recommended Posts

I was actually thinking about that and I guess PF and I can enter pics in but they just not be in the competition.

Exactly, I don't mind sharing my stuff. We wont judge them, that's it

Ok, well i know idealy 3 judges would have been the best but it looks like its just you two so are you both happy with that? We could always add another judge at some point if someone puts themselves forward.

I've already picked out the photo(s) I will enter.

Mods, whenever you're ready.

Hmm I really think we should allow editing, how many pictures entered into photography competitions do you see that have come straight from the camera?

Also we need a theme this month!

I think if you post the edited one you should post the original also.

Good plan, how about:

Post the edited, final version as a thumbnail and then link to the original.

Judges can base their opinion largely on the FINAL version but refer to the ORIGINAL to see whats been done.

Remember the idea is to judge composition, innovation etc... and not penalise someone for picking the wrong White Balance setting on their camera, or slightly-under exposing a shot (things that can and should be fixed in Photoshop).

I didnt realise the topic was already up there with the rules, maybe we should just do it along with his rules for this montyh and suggest it to him and MonkeyClaw for next month.

Sorry I've got to say the rules in the thread Pink Floyd made are not appropriate.

You can't just blanket ban editing. This automatically handicaps lots of people. I propose two categories: Manipulated and Unmanipulated. I think you should all read this to see what I would allow in the 'unmanipulated' category: http://www.photo.net/photodb/manipulation

There has to be a theme every month, even if it is a very broad theme i.e. 'The Outdoors' which I think should be this month's topic.

Ok, I've amended the thread to allow editing and added an "Edits" description box whereby candidates describe how they've manipulated their photos. :yes:

Perhaps people should just use decent equipment, and take decent photos rather than relying on software fixes.

Not everyone can afford 'decent equipment'

Next to that use sometimes use the wrong settings without actually knowing it :p

By the way, I suggest a one photo entry limit for next month...

Also, I'm wondering; Will the be only a top 3 or something or is there going to be a complete ranking with all the pics that entered....

I think the latter is somewhat more fun...
