still26: Insects / bugs allowed? ( 5 years and 531 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Insects / bugs are animals... so no if they are the subject. If they are 'accidentally' in the shot it is OK. If there's an small ant somewhere on a flower for instance it is OK ( 5 years and 531 days ago )
still26: "As a general rule, you are allowed to all adjustments which act on the whole picture" (copied from guidelines for photography contests). My question is a Cezanne filter on an entire image of a flower is then acceptable? ( 5 years and 530 days ago )
Contest Moderator: After reviewing what a Cezanne filter is, it would not be allowed. This filter alters too much of the original photo. ( 5 years and 529 days ago )
still26: Thank you for checking it out. ( 5 years and 528 days ago )

The beaches of the island of Bermuda are pink in color. A small pinch of the beach sand there shows that the grains are made up of the remains of tiny marine creatures. The coin was added to the image to provide a size comparison scale. (5 years and 530 days ago)
