How to be certain about HDR
Feb 5, 2013

When a challenge specifies "No HDR" but one or more entries sure look like it, how do you think a voter should handle it? I don't want to penalize someone by assuming they cheated when in reality they just took a tack-sharp photo and edited it very skillfully. Is there some way to tell (other than when it's so overdone it's obvious!) I've just been giving the entry (and the challenge host) the benefit of the doubt, assuming that if the host didn't DQ it, then it should be judged accordingly.

Actually, that's kind of my whole problem of the 0.5 vote being used to say that an entry doesn't meet the challenge's rules. If the host thinks it meets the rules, then that ought to be that. Isn't that part of the host's responsibility?
