Hi,
I was wondering if a photo made up from 4 exposures, each photo having a lightning on a different part of the sky (the same skyline, camera didn't move), so the result would be a skyline full of lightnings would be acceptable as advanced editing..This would be my first submission with a stack photo, and I am not too sure if it wouldn't be DQ..
I am inclined to think so, but please confirm me..
Thanks.

I would stay away from that one.

it would be dq'd no question

Dq.....for that to work you would need to hold shutter open one time......however ...I'd like to see your photo though.

Why would it be DQ? You can combine up to 10 frames and use layer masks in Advanced.

because the lighting strikes in different frames in different spots. If there were no lightening it would be a different story.

exactly you can combine different exposures so long as nothing in the images changes, say for HDR. the was a challenge entry that was god example that got dq'd because one exposure had a swan or duck and the others didn't.

Then what is the point of allowing multiple frames if nothing can be changed between frames?

As the rules state, you can combine identically-composed images to increase the dynamic range or the depth of field beyond what can be captured with a single exposure. The idea is be able to improve the technical quality without creating a new composition which didn't exist originally.

Perhaps the rules should be amended to note that because that is not clear at all from reading them.

Edit: Nevermind, I see where it says it now.
