That'd be nice. The degree-based rat race in America is useless.

Anyway, first post contains new info about a REAL prize.

I never said it needed to be straight outta the camera but I also highly doubt most people are ONLY using contrast and lighting (burn/dodge) techniques to enhance their photos.

If all you need are some curves and levels enhancements I'd still consider that PRETTY DARN CLOSE to straight outta the camera.

Can you post an example for this theme please?

PS- I've recently realized that the photos in these contests are voted for based on whether or not it catches the voters' eyes and not so much the art in them. This might be the first theme in which the pictures might actually get voted for based on their artistic values.

that's what happens when the contest is based on voters coming from a car community. No real photography background (for most).

I applaud oneintheory for trying tho. This prize thing should make things more interesting. I know i'm gonna put some thought into this one.
