    Time to announce the March challenge!
    The theme for this month is Technology!

    It doesn't say "high-technology", so I would think just about anything man-made would be appropriate. A pulley is technology, as it's the application of science. So is a water pump; and even wheels, which are everywhere.

    I take it photo manipulations are not allowed, but what if I took the photos?

    Depends how much the photo's been manipulated. I don't know if people really noticed, but a couple months ago we let one slide. It wasn't particularly well done and we figured we'd let people judge it for themselves.

    All I can say is submit the photo and we'll decide whether to include it or not.

    I was referring to a lot more than just processing. That is pretty normal to do to any photo that's posted on the web, be it digital or a film scan. What I meant was manipulated as in cut and pasted, and rotated, and several photos blended, etc...

    I'll just submit mine, and you can judge for yourself :p

    Using Photoshop for corrective work is nothing serious. In fact I would expect that most people would do it.

    I have participated in contests on other sites, and gnerally, rules for strict photography contests allow unsharp mask, levels adjustment, etc so long as they cover the entire image. Nothing that only covers a portion of the work only, such as masking out a section of a curves adjustment, etc is allowed. One site doesn't allow cloning out hot pixels, etc, either.

    Of course, some of those things are so hard to spot if done correctly that it is (in reality) an honor system thing.
