Hi fellow photographers.
I was just reading over the FAQ section and this question caught my eye.
Q:Can I send in digitally enhanced/composite photos?
A:No, Airliners.net does not accept photos that have been altered in any way.
I am very aware that splicing together two or more photos is not allowed and I am for that matter not interested in such pictures. It is the phrase digitally enhanced that got me curious.
What I was wondering about is where to draw the line with general altering of photos. I am used to sharpening my pictures and adjusting the brightness/contrast before sending them in for screening and I guess that is common practice. But that is still altering of the photo.
I am curious about where the screeners at Airliners.net draw the line with digital enhancing. Especially when it comes to adjusting the colour balance of the picture. Is it for example not well seen to increase the red colour in a picture of an airplane at sunset when such effect could easily be achieved with the use of filters on the lens.
Just asking.....I don´t want to break any rules.
