anneb: I’d think for this contest you just want to capture the style/essence/appearance with your final result, whether that requires digital manipulation or not.
As for my submissions, I’m probably going to enter 1 or 2 that demonstrate my own style and the remainder of someone else’s. Of course, my personal style probably fits into a style or styles that have already been categorized, but there ya go.
I’d thought of doing Ansel Adams for one of mine; I have a boatload of Yosemite pics from my honeymoon. But alas, they were all shot with a crappy 35mm point and shoot camera, and the resolution of the (almost certainly plastic) lens would make Adams spin in his grave and surely bring down a good and proper smiting from the photography gods….
So yeah, back to the drawing board for me 😉
