Digital manipulations

All entries should limit the use of digital manipulations to only file conversion, level, curve and sharpening. Adding elements to the original image that were not there are NOT allowed.

 

Voting & Comments

During the "open period", please do NOT enter the comments in the thread, this way we will have all the entries together without interruption and it's easy to view. Comments are welcomed during the voting period.

 

The Judge will select the top three finalists' work to include in the Poll for all members to vote on.

 

VOTING will follow after the end of Challenge, for one week only. Registering multiple user accounts to vote is not allowed.

In the event of a tie, the judge will make a decision between the tied finalists.

 

 

Chief Judge

The winner of current Bi-weekly Challenge will serve as the Judge for the challenge after the next, for example, the winner of Challenge #1 will be the Judge for Challenge #3.

===================

END OF CHALLENGE RULES

===================

 

All of the above is proven to stop abuse, unfortunately even when NO prizes are offered, some will still try pull the wool over peoples eyes and win for winnings sake

I did pm BikerIan and informed him that his entries where not eligible to be entered in the challenge, they where good entries but unfortnately outside of the challenge rules in the time they where taken. I had hoped he would replace them.

 

 

Both entries disqualified, taken outside of Challenge period

Some very good shots in the challenge so well done all and i look forward to seeing the final three put to the vote :)

 

cant help but notice that there was not as many entrants in to the challenge as we have had in the past so i hope thats down to peeps being on holiday or not being able to get out and grab some snaps rather then people losing interest.

 

Keep the great pics coming and I'm looking forward to the Bridge challenge.

 

Cheers

 

Ollie.
