Have you sent a politely-worded PM to the host? Usually, they are happy to explain why they DQ someone. And, given your image (where there seems to be a consensus that you did not overly PP--and were perhaps a bit light in terms of processing), it would be a good thing to get clarification on, even if only b/c you may enter this host's later challenges, and doing so would be pointless if your normal images all are DQ'd.

This was the response to why I was disqualified.

In response to why you got disqualified.
There have been many complaints of entries that don't look natural.(PPed too much)
May how ask how did you edit this photo?

It looks to me like possibly it's been mildly tone-mapped. I have no problem at all with that if true.

You don't TAKE a photo, you MAKE a photo.

Well said. This is what Ansel Adams believed. What counts, IMHO, is the result but not how you arrive to that result! We also used to spend much time in darkrooms! Every digital camera has a software, but I prefer to makemy shots myself instead of leaving to the camera to decide for me!

The amount of PP is very relative, anyway!...
