So, then shall I ask Bear to change the title to "Pseudo-composite with Overlay"? I like it. No description needed.

And here's where it gets difficult - it's either a composite or it's not, and if it's a composite in Advanced then there needs to be specific wording as to what that means without making so complicated to understand that we debate it more than we shoot for it. If the goal is to create an overlay that could add what would be considered new elements to the shot I would keep it along those lines without going as far as composite. Perhaps the special rule could read something like,

"Your overlay texture may add what would normally be considered new elements to the photo provided they do not fully obscure/replace content from the primary image as in a composite."

a pseudo-composite

as opposed to an overlay that was used to add new elements to the image (that are not texture, but additional items of interest.

Not a pseudo-composite.

I'd honestly need to see the individual images to understand what is and isn't composited/overlaid - which like I said, gets confusing when you want it to exist in Advanced.

Title: Texture Overlay

Description: as above.

Ruleset: Advanced

FLAGGED Special Rule: Your image MUST contain a texture overlay, shot by you during the challenge time-frame. For this challenge only, we will be a little more lenient on how aggressive your texture may be.


Does this work?

Alternatively: You MUST find and photograph your own texture overlay during the challenge period, your image MUST use the overlay, and you MUST provide the original if validation is requested by SC.

I vote for the second wording -- let's not add to what's already a gray area. As that version says, the editing should follow the Advanced rules as written regarding the use of textures, with the special rule being that you must shoot the texture yourself during the challenge submission, and you MUST use a texture.

Yes. I agree. Second wording. :D Only keep in the "lenient" part. Images will NOT be DQd for how the texture is applied to the image.

how about an in camera double exposure? for me this is easier - more athletic and less cerebral - than post melding.

You could also specify using something from the DPC Textures Library if you want some kind of limitation -- texture used could be easily referenced in the notes ...

"Limitation"? you call that "limitation"? have you seen the number of textures in there?
I'm sure that anyone will find at least 1 texture which works with his/her image.

I was also suggesting that if the OP wanted to specify a list of "available" textures, they could pick a few from that library, rather than gathering/posting new ones. The current suggestion to shoot one's own is even less limiting ...

But much more fun. More of a chance to develop your photographers eye. More practice with photography. Why we are all here.
