NOW THIS IS TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.There was a thread in one of the galleries that got me thinking about the old days. For years us old guys shot picture with little or no post processing. I go back and look at what I did back then and except for a little cropping most of them didn't need any. Now I'm working from the negatives not the prints after the lab did their thing so they really are raw. So here is what I propose... I am going to shoot pictures for a while with only minimal post processing. All about knowing what your equipment will do and how you see things originally. Everyone is invited to put their images here as well. Rules are simple.... Clone only to remove dust, No burning or dodging, no photoshoppe of any kind. No cropping allowed at all. What you see is what you get. If you use layers you should be able to eat them. See how close to a finished picture you can shoot directly from your camera. I promise sometime today I'll shoot one and then I can see if I still have it. So here is your chance to get even if you need to. You are on your honor to follow the rules no monitor here.
