Processing rules: No composites please, minor dust cloning is acceptable. Please keep the look real, it should not look too HDRish. (Halos, LSD sky and clown-vomit colours should be kept to a minimum) Cropping is OK, but do not cut out / replace the background.
Capture date rule: No restrictions
Additional rules: The total entry limit is now set at 85, might slightly increase the limit if this challenge is well received. Do not submit shots used in previously completed DPReview.com challenges. No political statements please, any photos with the slightest hint of controversial statement or message will be removed without any notice. Shots I find offensive might be removed. Make sure the entries look good and tasteful (at least you must find your own shot tasteful). Complaints might not be entertained after the voting has ended. The host's action (or inaction) is up to him.
Nakedness in Nature Here's an interesting NATURE challenge for you! Show us examples of nakedness in the environment: bare trees in winter, dead tree trunks, seeds without their protective pods, flower heads after the petals have died, bare rocks, bare earth, bare bones in the desert, baby birds or animals before they have fledged or grown hair to cover themselves.... Absolutely NO NAKED HUMANS or parts thereof, no domestic pets, no man-made structures and nothing which humans have uncovered or made bare. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry: 1,600px on its longer side.
Starts: Saturday, 01 Aug 2015
Processing rules: SIZE: Longer side of entry, MAXIMUM 1600px. FULL colour only. No glaringly obvious HDR or extreme post-processing. If it hurts my eyes, it's out! TITLE: Give your entry a title or name, not just a file number. NO watermarks or forms of identification, or personal website reference
Capture date rule: No restrictions
Additional rules: Photos from previous DPR challenges can be entered in this challenge, but no photos which have won previous DPR challenges, please. Photos which have been entered in multiple challenges may be disqualified. Find something new to show us. Two (2) entries per person allowed, but each entry should be a different subject. PLEASE vote on other entries, to counteract the sandbaggers, (those who give very low votes to quality entries in order to damage their chances of winning.) Entrants who cheat by sandbagging, vote manipulation, vote solicitation, or with multiple DPR accounts will be banned from my challenges.
