friiskiwi: "facial enhancements are allowed on your close-up." We can photoshop the image? ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
rbsgrl: "Take a creative closeup shot of a human face."
"male or female face, but also an animal face closeup."
So, it can be human or animal? ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
Mikaelbg: Yep, this is confusing lol ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Ditto!!! ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
smokebigbird: n does it have to be the whole face? ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
Ory: Yeah I'd really like some moderator clarification on this as well. Both, can it be an animal? and does it have to be a full face? ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
debdyutsarker: I'm sorry. This is really a bad mistake by me. I suggested this a long time ago. I'm not understanding how it happened. This should be "But not an animal face closeup". Extremely sorry for the mistyping. But I think the objective has been changed (I mean to say post editing). I'm sorry if I'm wrong. Please pardon me... ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
debdyutsarker: Ya!!! I was right. I've found the objective I wrote. This was "The Goal is Very Simple. Take a creative closeup shot of a Human Face. It can be a male or female face, but not any animal." This is a mistake of the moderator who retype this. Thank you and best of luck guys... ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Animals allowed. Goal rewritten to show no post edit other than that already allowed in PXL. ( 5 years and 1360 days ago )
friiskiwi: Do wish it was only animals or people. ( 5 years and 1358 days ago )
MnMCarta: I have to agree with frisskiwi cause if an animal wins it's like... "that animal is cuter than my child?" lol Yes I know it's about the way the picture is but still....ooo that reminds me of a contest theme where the owner looks like their pet! ( 5 years and 1358 days ago )
Ory: Am I the only one who thinks close-up pictures of children always look just a little creepy? Maybe its cause I dont like kids. ( 5 years and 1358 days ago )
adeincyprus: it shouldn't have anything to do with 'that animal is cuter than my baby'.......... it should have to do with the fact that the winning image is technical and artistically better than the others!! ( 5 years and 1357 days ago )
adeincyprus: so many hdrs in the contests now............... imo, they are, in many cases, not all, just an easy way for an author to enter an otherwise poor image. the hdr process hides a lot of stuff. ( 5 years and 1357 days ago )
karaflazz: Well said. ( 5 years and 1357 days ago )
MnMCarta: ADEINCYPRUS... I swear you never read all of what I say. I said "Yes I know it's about the way the picture is but still" so I GET IT that it's about the picture itself just I was only voicing my opinion about comparing humans to animals. No biggy. ( 5 years and 1356 days ago )
adeincyprus: MnM, I did read your post, I was just reiterating what you said, but in a different way....... ( 5 years and 1356 days ago )
momvera: "Take a creative closeup shot of a human face. It can be a male, female or animal face. "
I'm sorry, but in my opinion human face couldn't be an animal face... ( 5 years and 1356 days ago )
MnMCarta: OOOOO I see said the blind man to the deaf dog! ( 5 years and 1354 days ago )
frelbow: Humans are animals ( 5 years and 1351 days ago )
