PF Photo Contest Rule Discussion - At What Point Is It A "Photo Editing"? It is inevitable that, at some point, we have to revisit the PF Photo Contest rules and modify or clarify the rules that we currently have. The current issue is with Rule #2 in the contest: As SecularSanity has pointed out, cameras nowadays are capable of doing a lot more than what they can before. And at some level, all digital cameras do quite a bit of image processing. So where should we draw the line in where we consider to be photo editing? My whole "philosophy" on this is that the photo contest is about displaying what you saw with your eyes if you didn't have a camera. It means that it isn't a black-and-white image (unless the objects are truly just black and while), and it means no special features on the camera that only colorize one object and not the rest. As I stated in Rule #2, it is a photo contest, not a photo editing/special effect contest. The point in all of this is to allow for as many people to participate, regardless of the type of cameras they have. One might have an advantage with a DSLR camera in the quality of the photo, but not in the quality of special features or functions. So with this in mind, I am proposing that Rule #2 be kept, but adding the prohibition of using special features of a camera that considerably alters the scene. I consider using the b&w function, for example, as altering the scene. I'm sure that, at some point, I have to make a judgement call on what is considered to be "considerable alteration". So what do you all think? Zz.
