NIKON CAFE CHALLENGE BASIC RULES 1. Every participant is allowed one picture per challenge. 2. The picture has to be taken between the submission start and end date. This is to make it a "Challenge" and not just another "Best Picture Contest" 3. The posted picture must remain unaltered, once posted. But the text of the participation may be edited/changed, as often as necessary (for possible exceptions contact the Challenge Leader)! 4. Pictures may be processed/edited and worked on, in post production before submitting them, but the main picture/content must have been taken during the submission dates. 5. Somewhat controversial pictures are permitted, but please use your judgment and keep it within reason. ( Note that this community should remain suitable for all age groups ) 6. If there are any questions or obscurities the Challenge Leader is the person to appeal and to decide. _______________________________________________ Further Guidelines and Suggestions for Participation: - Please feel free to give your picture a title, and even explain it a little! - When posting the submission it is might be welcomed, to share some Information about the shot. This could be done by posting the EXIF-data or just sharing the equipment used or the exposure. For example: Shot_on_Date, Focal_Length, Aperture, Shutter_Speed, ISO, Priority, Metering, Compensation, Flash - Try to keep the submission at 965 pixels (extreme formats, like panoramas, may require more). Just keep in mind the cafe server resizes pictures larger than 965 pixels and provides a link to the original size. - To save even more bandwidth, it might be reasonable to adjust the compression (while saving it as jpg), to keep the file size under 500kb (jpg-compression: 60%-80% may be optimal for most pictures). This should keep loading times to a minimum.
