Sure he can be PMed but that only helps him. Discussing it in a forum helps everyone. When I first got here the forums and the photographer comments is where I learned about what you can and can't do in the challenges. I can assure you he isn't the only person that may be confused about what's allowed. Threads like this are most helpful. I really don't see why discussing this is an issue. Nobody is calling him names.


Exactly. This has morphed, very usefully, into a discussion of whether "light effects" is legal in basic. I'm hoping an SC will chime in, as is Doc. I'm pretty sure it's not, though. In fact, I think the tool's so powerful it's often used to create effects that won't pass muster in Advanced...

Whilst I am not saying that I agree or disagree with either the reason for DQ or the discussing of an individual...I do want to say that one of my DQ's early in the peace was for something I thought was legal. I was DQ'ed. I then brought it to the forums to help others. And sure enough, 2 others came forward and said they didn't know it was illegal also and had to then quickly remove their own entries before they went to vote.

So my mistake...helped at least 2 others from the humiliation of a DQ.

So discussing whether an effect used was legal or not is relevant to not just the person at the center of the discussion...but also to others as well.

As long as there is no finger pointing...there is no need for 'defending'.

Keep it civil guys.

Out of curiosity, what did I say that's even remotely negative?

Nothing. It's just that I wouldn't have liked to be the subject of a discussion like this. I am not saying you have any negative intention. I am pretty sure you don't. :)

To be fair, the individual isn't the subject of the discussion. The gradient/vignette he used is. Like Achoo said, if there is a legal gradient we would all just like to know about it.

I understand where you are coming from but you must remember once you enter a challenge your photo becomes open for discussion in the forums and if you happen to get a DQ well I think it's imperative that we then have open and frank discussions regarding the DQ.

DQ's are all part of the learning curve.

OK OK, bring it back to the question we're all reading this now for, is "Lighting Effects" legal or not...........I very much doubt it for basic, but for advanced....?
