Personally I think there should just be one set of editing rules. Somewhere between Basic and Advanced, Limit Topaz and HDR images to Free Study challenges only and maybe once a month offer a straight out of the camera challenge.

But I suspect too many people would grunt and groan about that. So in advance I regret even suggesting it.


i would second that. being a "non-member" i do feel limited by not being able to blur or clone out distracting tidbits sometimes, which usually leads to me have to tighten the crop (and lose the "negative" space) or go back and reshoot (which is usually easy since many of my shots are "studio").

i would also agree that Topaz/HDR should be limited to specific challenges (but i do like the results)

I do like the occasional minimal editing challenge. Harkens back to the day when we shot slides for slide shows.

Anybody ever carry a color temperature meter and all the filters for what we call "white balance" today?

Sure did! Couldn't have lived without that stuff doing architectural interiors.
