Is it really appropriate to be having who the photo is by? EG: Pic 4 Streetscapes and Pic 3 Shapes

Doesnt bother me.. but up to you guys. If you dont want it at all, i can make it a strict rule.

Its a pretty standard rule for photographic competitions :) its also pretty obvious why you wouldn't want to identify peoples entries.

 

Up to you mate, you organise them

in theory, but you can also just 'right click, view image' and see where its hosted which in most cases will directly identify the photographer.

maybe a ns.com photobucket account for entries to be uploaded too will make it a lot harder to identify entries. although, i have copyright info in my exif, so stripping exif info may also be needed, lol. flickr seems to do this automatically, so maybe a ns.com flickr account for competition entries?

 

Good idea :)

 

+ Perhaps putting "COPYRIGHT RETAINED BY OWNER" in arial font on pictures entered can be used

Perhaps one with 0% post processing?

But i bet a lot of arguments will start and people will claim no processing.. then someone will cheat and do a tiny bit and strip exif etc..

 

Plus photography is all about processing. I dont think there is a single photographer who is serious about photography who doesnt do some sort of processing.. even if its just a simple increase on contrast and thats it.

I haven't learnt how to process any of my photo's yet so I would be up for the whole no processing comp haharolleyes.gif

 

I'm entering this next comp just to get some advice on my photo's and just to learn, it won't be any where near the quality of these pics but i'm going to give it a golaugh.gif

Just wondering, what is this and/or how was it taken?

 

Its a hammer head coral.

 

Its from my marine fish tank!!

 

How was it taken? - um with a marco lens. Photo taken thru the tank glass.

 

Cheers :)

its basically impossable to have no processing, to do this sidd could give everyone a disposable camera :lol:

now that would be a f**king good comp. no bullshit just pure picture taking. we buy our own disposable cameras and send them in with a voucher for processing to a judge, would be epic.

24 exposures, 24 themes. hahaha. that would sort the men from the boys.

 

 

on a similar note, how about a phone cam competition. only tool allowed is a phone camera. best use of the shitty tools at your disposal wins, lol. photos must be uploaded/emailed direct from phone.

 

id have no hope with the phone comp, i have 2 megapixels :( ill have to wait until iphone comes out with d700 full frame sensor :lol:

 

but still is a good idea though.

 

i saw on my mates iphone4 it has a HDR function, anyone know of it??

But skill only shines through with dud equipment to a certain degree. I could be the worlds best macro photographer, but the photo would still look like a dogs breakfast on my phone, doubt it even has 1 megapixel.

 

And green pea, why would it be impossible to have no processing? Are you saying the issue lies within the honesty of the competitors, or that all photos need tweaking?

HDR is the bomb when u can get it right. But i doubt iphone 4 takes 3+ shots at differnt exposures.

 

but the iphone camera isnt that bad! some of my pano landscape shots are mad!

 

 

 

inspired for both themes again. y'all gonna laugh XD
