I think we should allow some editing like colour correction, exposure, sharpness, cropping, touch up. But not allowed to recompose the image ie no adding anything that wasn't there. So you can't cut out the fish and put it on another background or recompose it to reposition elements.


Good job Maddie and James for putting this together. :D

Main thing is people use their own photos, not edit someone else's to make it look their own. Don't want heaps of colour editing either as we want the skill in the photo, not the skill in touch ups :)

1. I still need 10 more posts to be eligible, must work on that...,

Hang on, after this post I'll be down to 9 :-)

2. Just to clarify, cropping photo's is acceptable, however messing around with colours, distorting images etc is frowned upon?

Personally, I think that sounds fair, my brain just works better with absolutes :-)

Sounds about right MissM :) - If you started a spawn log, you'd hit 20 in no time ;) Or go searching through some of the older threads and ask questions on anything not quite clear :)

I'm carefully going through my photos, trying to figure out what I'm going to submit...it's as hard as figuring out which fish I want to buy next :)

I've been meaning to take my SLR into the shop for ages, so I think some after hours snapping might be in order :-)

I can kill three birds with one stone, new pics for the shop website, entries for the comp and practise for me!

Yes that's about right, you can crop, but no obvious changing pictures. Defeats the purpose. We are going to need to change the email for the comp as the email we listed isn't working properly. Hopefully everyone spams facebook with this comp as it's a great prize for people.

Yep cropping fine. Even minor changes like adjusting sharpness or brightness its mostly serious altering we're not cool with. And **** effects like comic book style :P

Yep new address will be the info@lodobettaaquatics.com.au one since it definitely works

And I'll forget to fix the other one otherwise :P
