but in my humble opinion, I think its brilliant having an assignment where no post processing is allowed, sorry :?


I agree! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with without the additional post processing. Good luck, all!

I just saw Mikeroch's entry and came in here expecting to find 9 pages of praise for such a wonderful image!

Well done Mikeroch!

Indeed very well done, it's a beautiful photo. Great work!

I also like iop098's entry. I was thinking of shooting a light bulb too, at first, but I could find one with clear glass... Good idea to replace the wire with a flame!

Is RAW conversion allowed? I may have missed this if it appeared somewhere in this thread.

What I mean is converting the RAW image into a JPEG, using only the camera settings which were used to capture the original image (without any alterations whatsoever). I'm asking since I stupidly captured the image in RAW and not JPEG, and to attempt the same capture again would require a 700km trip :oops:

This conversion would be on par with the same in-camera process to convert the RAW data into a JPEG, correct?

So would this be allowed?

RAW conversion - but conversion only - is allowed. 8)

Yes, RAW conversion is allowed provided the converter reads and uses the same defaults as are set in the camera. If the image is loaded in your conversion software and you find yourself mousing over towards a control to allow the image to be tweaked then stop before it's too late as such an image would not be eligible. I realise this may be problematic for those with an established workflow, particularly using third party software, but "them's the rules" this month and none of us would want to gain an unfair advantage over those entries which have already been submitted.

Bob.

Thanks for the clarification Bob. That's exactly what I had in mind.

I used to shoot only in JPEG, but then I got bitten by the RAW bug :twisted:
Now it's it become my primary format... weird how quickly it happened :roll:

Okay, I may have smooched the pooch. My entry was taking forever to download on flickr so I resized it to a smaller size. Do you guys think I should download from the camera and send it back out to flickr and redownload here. (No post processing otherwise.)

Even?!? Are you implying my previous entries weren't to standard? Cheek :p

Seriously though, thanks. I look forward to your overexposed entry.

Right, that's my submission thrown in to the ring. Have to say, I think the "no post processing" rule has resulted in me getting a better end result by forcing me to THINK and not rely on fixing the image at a later point.

Now... What am I going to photograph for the rest of June?

You could always clean your sensor beforehand...
