|If you see a shot in a Basic Editing challenge that has a vignetted look, there are several possibilities as to how it was achieved:
- The properties of the lens. Wide lenses, especially on cameras with 35mm sensors, can show some vignetting. Not necessarily cheap lenses either ;-)
- Use of a filter or other obstructing device on the front of the lens
- The photographer lit the shot in such a way to specifically to provide that effect
If you're voting, and you see vignetting that you are not sure is legal, please do vote as if it were achieved legally, and ask for a review. We'll be glad to look at the shot, request proof if required, and take any necessary action.
