Were photoshop filters allowed for this challenge??? Because i'm thinking i missed something based on the description of this and previous impressionism challenges.

After tanking and seeing this comment on a number of entries. 'Relies on a photoshop filter to produce its entire value in meeting the challenge: 1.'

Even tho the issuing of a 1 seems to be consistent with the commenter's average vote cast of 3.9553. Seems this was unclear to other voters as well.

No, not unclear to me at least. I've been clear on the rules since they were new.

It's a personal preference that the voter was expressing; it had nothing to do with rules.

Yes. Check out the comments. You were not alone. Just one voter expressing his opinion and punishing entrants accordingly.

No the rules aren't unclear.
Using PS filters is okay, as they are always within the ruleset exept minimal

But there is a general discussion if a picture which is processed heavily is still a photo or another piece of artwork (lets call it phainto - a mixture between photo, photoshopping and painting)

The comments refers on the personal opinion of the voter that a phainto is not appropriate for a photo challenge.
That's how I interpret this.

And it may occur to any other challenge as well. You as a creator of your entry can decide if you want to risk low votes because your entry is more a phainto instead of a photo or not.

I can't ever recall using one of those photoshop filters before now. I'm more on the minimal photoshop side, which is why i avoid 'extended rules' challenges. Learned something from this experience tho. I'm good :)
