This is for single images only, and basic editing is allowed EG alteration of colour /light /cropping/ removal of small objects
etc. Any adjustments should not alter the truth of the photographic statement beyond a believable photograph.
ALTERED PHOTOGRAPHY (DIGITALLY PROJECTED IMAGES)
The only limitation in this category is that the photographic content must predominate,
Graphics created by the author can be incorporated, however, they must be used artfully to produce an effective image
In this section, creative photography has elements of altered reality and emphasis on alteration of general photography
including HDR /Stacking / special effects and filters/montages and many other none standard adjustments,
So exercise your imagination using all of the above to produce an image that would not be possible with
standard photography process.
