The photos entered by MacGroup Members that participate in the walk must be taken at the designated time and location that is selected for the PhotoWalk.
Your images may show wildlife in its natural habitat, plant life, natural landscapes, weather or people interacting with nature.
All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared, (was photographed). There is no problem with the removal of a distracting minor element... the proverbial telephone/electrical wire or a blade of grass. You cannot combine elements from multiple photos, i.e. an insect or bird (for example) that was captured as one image and then added to another image.
Please keep in mind that this is a photography competition not a Photoshop competition.
Photos should not be digitally altered beyond standard optimization i.e. the removal of dust, cropping, adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.
Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single "High Dynamic Range" image are acceptable.
Photos submitted can be color or black & white.
Images that do not meet these requirements may or may not be judged.
The photo judging will be divided into two categories:
Professional and Amateur.
Professional being anyone selling their photos and/or making income from their photography.
Amateur being hobby photographers.
MacGroup members will be the judges for the photo contest and the judging will be done online.
The photos must not have the photographers name visible on them, such as BrianStone.psd, or jpg.
A maximum of one photo per photographer can be submitted.
All entries must be sent to Brian.Stone@mail.com by the 7th of November.
Photos will be assigned a number and any MacGroup member in good standing will be able to vote for their favorite photo.
The viewing of entered photos will take place on the web and MacGroup Detroit members will be notified where to view them and when they will be available for voting.
First place will be the one that gets the most votes in each category, second and third place will be the photos that accumulate the second and third highest vote count respectively.
