    Standard Editing


    In addition to the requirements outlined in the Common Editing Rule Set, specific requirements for Standard Editing can be found below.


    You must...

    • create your entry from 1 or more captures of a single scene (defined as a scene whose overall composition/framing does not change). All captures used must be shot within the challenge submission dates and as part of a single series in relatively short time frame (e.g NOT time-lapse photography) This rule is intended to allow HDR imaging, focus-stacking, "crowd removal" composites, "light painting", astro-photography, and panoramic or other techniques that use multiple, nearly simultaneous, images of a scene stitched together into a single image.

    You may...

    • combine the allowed captures either in-camera or in post-processing.
    • use any feature of your camera while photographing your entry. In-camera features applied after the capture are subject to normal editing rules.
    • use images that do not meet the source or date requirements as textures in your entry if they function specifically as textures and not to circumvent other rules.
    • use cloning or similar tools to remove unwanted objects from your image. Objects removed must be replaced with with what actually would be visible if the distracting object were not there in the first place.
    • use cloning or similar tools to fill in gaps around the perimeters of panoramic or perspective-corrected photos with appropriate bits to continue the interrupted image.

    You may not...

    • add text to your image. This includes copyright notices.
