*Please, keep your entries under 50kb*

see EvilToni's page for how-to


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration in Photoshop or other image editing programs as possible. Please refer to submission rules

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

To ensure that each photograph looks as good as it should, please adjust your contrast and brightness

from black to white is evenly paced. If you can't do so, you may lose some shadow and highlight detail.
