Processing rules: No restrictions. If you don't do much Photoshop, that's fine, but please don't mark down those who do, as a principle. Small, unobtrusive watermarks are allowed, and should not be penalised in voting. Please don’t add any other text. Recommended image size is Facebook standard; 2048 pixels on the long side, but the challenge host (and voters) will tolerate other sizes.
Capture date rule: No restrictions
Additional rules: You must be the author of the image you enter. If you enter, please vote. If you vote, please vote fairly. The challenge host will decide whether the entry matches the brief and may disqualify any that seem not to. Re-entering an image? It's allowed, but the host may disqualify it at their sole discretion if they think it's stale. Others may complain to the host about images they've seen before. Be original, be creative. I may disqualify some of the weaker entries (to make space for more creative ones) if there are many on a similar theme. Please give the image a title and a description. Put a piece of your own soul into your entry; a simple record of someone else's art is unlikely to attract a high score. Constructive comments welcomed - on any entry - at any time after the challenge has opened for submissions. You may enter two (2) images.
Wide Open Challenge/Describe what you did With the exception that this is a family site, anything goes, from over processed image, to microscope, to the heavens, to totally abstract. Try to do this, enter 3 images, one that is way over the top with processing, angle, whatever, one that is normal, the last that is breaking all the rules anything, whatever you want. That is only suggestions, BUT -- YOU MUST DESCRIBE WHAT YOU DID OR THINKING TO MAKE THE FINAL IMAGE. My criteria is simple, keep it so if your kids see it, they're not going to be grossed out, scared to death, or exposed to outright hate and violence. I will delete, without any explanation, violations.

Processing rules: There is never any post processing rules in my challenges. I don't care how you got there, or what you did to the image to create whatever it is you have in mind. Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Monet and Picasso where all criticized for their art, yet it stood the test of time. Nor do I understand the war on HDR when in and of itself, it is an art form.
Capture date rule: No restrictions
Additional rules: It must be YOUR photograph Your MUST describe what you did in post image processing, software used, even why you use it. It can be manipulated to not look like a photo, please indicate that if you do You can use any type of camera, from a pinhole, to a phone, to a state of the art digital, to a view camera. This is a family site, you know what I mean, don't make me delete your challenge Do not violate the TOS You are not required to vote, but if you do, vote fairly. There are no awards here, this is only a tool to see how you are doing among your peers THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
