Processing: Computer manipulation such as spot removal, contrast and level adjustments, conversion to monochrome, color and saturation adjustments, and cropping are permitted. Focus stacking, HDR composites, stitched panoramas and similar procedures that combine multiple images of the same scene are allowed. Minor cloning to remove extraneous elements such as trash, telephone wires, etc. is also permitted; but cloning or other techniques that relocate, replace, or remove significant pictorial elements are not permitted. In addition, techniques that artificially create or add image elements not in the original scene are not permitted. Creative digital filters that manipulate existing photographic pixels (e.g., to produce brush strokes, surface texture, added noise) are permitted.
Human Elements: Human elements are allowed.
There will be one overall winner chosen.
Any image submitted into the competition may be used by Historic Manassas for marketing purposes. Credit to the photographer may be given if feasible.
