one beautiful morning in the woods nearby.
the softness is from incamera softfilter.

Back from vacation to find the DQ :(
THIS is absolutely riddiculous!! it's a f^&%$ng IN CAMERA filter!! So if I just opened it in PS and threw a slight gaussian blur over it, it would've been OK. But the same effect was done in my camera before even transferring it to the computer and it's not according to the rules.
I really DO NOT agree with this DQ!
Disqualification Details

I didn't know of this case until now. I agree with you 100%. It is ridiculous to DQ an image for the use of a soft filter in the camera. The Basic Editing rules are nothing but EDITING rules, and you have NOT edited anything here. You were robbed!!. Congratulations for this fantastic image.

I don't understand how you broke the rules, (or spirit), behind the basic editing ruleset.

bad luck.

Ah Tanja, I cant believe it! Damn those basic editing rules, still, its an amazing image. I am so disappointed this was DQ'ed. Dont lose heart though, its an amazing image regardless!!!

This is a beautiful image. I would not have thought about the in camera edit not being Ok for "Basic Editing" rules.
On the bright side, it has a lot of well deserved glowing comments and nearly 5,000 views already, so it is a very popular image.

This is an awesome shot with the sunrays. It would be nice to see a little more detail in the bushes, since this is flora, but I love this shot.

wonderful lighting but the shaded parts are colored funny and seem noisy, this would probably look better as a black and white
