im thinking about entering some photos in the natures best photography contest. this would be my first contest.
1)does anyone know if it is ok to eliminate backscatter in photos for the winland rice competition?
2)when cropping, would it be ok to change a picture from landscape to portrait orientation?

thanks for the help

Hi,

I would say :
1/ if rules allow minor editing, then removing spots is allowed unless it is clearly indicated that it is not.
2/ if rules allows cropping, then it allows cropping :)

the rules

All photographs must accurately reflect the subject matter as it appeared in the viewfinder. Nothing should be added to an image, and aside from dust spots and in camera digital spots, nothing should be taken away. Normal processing of RAW image files and minor adjustments to color and contrast are acceptable, as is minimal cropping

If you mean rotating an image from landscape to portrait, then realistically, who is going to know (other then you)

If you mean cropping a photo to change the aspect ratio from landscape to portrait, then that means removing a fair amount of the original image through the crop, I don't think that would qualify as minimal.
