Rules:

1. You may only submit one photo per contest.

2. The contest runs for exactly one week, from the first time stamp of the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest).

3. Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. A good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography, so it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

4. The judge will choose his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it, and include a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for choosing a new topic and starting a new contest thread, which will again run for exactly one week.

This week's theme: Planes, trains & automobiles

Or any other type of vehicle. Whatever floats your boat!

Sorry, newbie question here -- feel free to PM me if you don't want to clutter up the thread!

How much PhotoShopping is allowed in this contest? I have a car photo I am thinking about entering that has been edited.

Nothing major, just subtle lighting effects with layering/blending of multiple exposures (HDR, sort of), and then basic lens distortion corrections (rotate, de-pincushion, perspective adjustment and removing chromatic aberrations)

Thanks in advance!

Big J.

Can't PM you or email but not important. I don't see a rule banning PhotoShopping - so for me its cool. However, I don't see a rule stopping you from entering a photo by your Aunty Sally.......... but I guess in the end common sense will win out.

I'm not a regular here, but I would say that the image has to originate from a camera, and after that the rest is art.
