    Re: Photo Contests?

    Pssssttttt
    My first camera was a sped grafix in high school in 1955 we developed B/W only. But that was not the question. I am not interested in someone's skills in the darkroom film or digital.

    You do understand that Ansel Adams never burned a print straight from negative, right? He dodged and burned every one of them...

    Sssssshhhh, Fred!! While they keep trying to figure out how to get a "perfect" exposure in-camera we'll be fine after a couple minutes in Lightroom.

    I'm aware of what your question is. What everyone is trying to make you aware of, is there is no such thing. Image editing is part of photography, and is part of the skill of the photographer.

    Any monkey can press a button to take a picture. Only a photographer can turn it into art.

    I get where @harleridr is coming from. Lemme 'splain.

    I thought about posting the question a few days ago, "What's fixable and what's not?", in reference to post processing. I know from my own fiddling with PSE and now LR5, that there is the photo that requires minimal post processing, the one that needs some more attention and the one that probably is beyond fixing.

    I also see great value in thinking before the shot as opposed to after the shot (every time I forget to think before). So, I see the benefit in contests that stress before the shot skills.

    Let's think of this in context outside of photography...

    Does JD Power & Associates give out their Best Car of the Year Award to cars that are still on the assembly line?

    Does Consumer Reports grade products that are not assembled, still in their boxes?

    Can you win a blue ribbon at the fair for an unbaked apple pie?

    Does the Westminster Kennel Club hand out Best in Show to a puppy?

    No, none of the above. Because in a competition, you put out your very best completed product. Be it a car, a gadget, an apple pie, a dog, or a photograph. Contest judges don't care about the process, it's only the end result that matters.

    Google "SOOC photo contest" might give you some ideas of the clubs or entities that do them or where to look of more info.

    You may not be interested in it, but every time you look at a photo it has been processed in some form or another.

    It's like saying that I only want to hear music that has not been processed.
    Trust me, it will sound pretty awful.
    Most people don't care how a photo or a piece of music was processed to end up with the final product you look at or listen to.

    Do you think that when the Beatles were recording Sgt Pepper they were worried about what some purist might think of their heavily processed sound?

    I believe there is a big difference between music and eye candy but then most of you people here are of the digital age and never used a real darkroom. I started with plates, then large film then around 1959 started with a 35mm argus c-3 up grading until my first nikon f-3 hp
