  2. Photographs may have slight digital alterations but any images with noticeable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc. will be disqualified.-I THINK THATS is just imposiblle to ask, i know everybody is using to much photoshop, but contrast, light – comon- thats the same things we used to do in a dark room. Its crazy to ask. What You mean guys, For exaple , if you make a photo in raw you just have to work on it a bit,
    angie

  3. The picture you have posted on your banner (the old man with beard) has a lot of posprocessing on it and it’s not just a “slight digital alteration” so I was wondering if you could explain or show where the line is drawn. I’d love to participate but I want to make sure my pictures are up to your standards.
