|My image was disqualified for the reasons of: You may not use ANY editing tool to create new image area, objects or features (such as lens flare or motion) that didn't already exist in your original capture
First of all there was no lens flare used as filter or motion in the editing of this image; this was the processing that was used: exactly by the book and rules of DPC clone out incidental power lines, twigs, dust specks, stray hairs, and similar minor imperfections.
apply filters, effects, dodge & burn, and other tools to all or part of your entry, but NO new shapes or features may be created in the process.
saturate, desaturate or change the colours of your entry or any existing object within it.
use layers, layer masks, and alternative layer modes.
I donít know where and who made this decision but there are absolutely wrong on the processing of my image ,the pathetic You may not use ANY editing tool to create new image area, objects or features (such as lens flare or motion) that didn't already exist in your original capture. Itís not good enough and totally wrong, i have provided my original capture as requested by DPC and all you get is the above?? I am sorry but i demand!! More explanation on how and what has made the person/persons responsible for this final decision. I am eagerly awaiting your response and i want you too take this very seriously, from photographers point of view this is insulting and depredating EXPECIALY WHEN I HAVE FOLOWED THE RULES AND SHOWED CREATIVITY IN MY ENTRY . Thank you. Faces
