As discussed last week, the rules around in-camera image modifications have been clarified. You can review the changes under the How To Participate and The Rules links on the left menu, but the upshot is that in-camera image modifications will be held to the same rules as post-processing. e.g. Using black and white or sepia tone when taking a picture will continue to be acceptable, however, in-camera selective color, distortion or other digital special effects will not be. The weekly boobies post rules overview will contain the following revised section:
Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.
