YOu cannot enter the same exposure in two challenges. If you have a similar shot, you can enter the different shots in different challenges.

It is listed under the third bullet under "You May Not" Advanced Editing Rules

Often there are two "Exclusive Open Challenge" opportunities running in parallel. I vaguely remember reading somewhere in DPC that the term "Exclusive" means "either one or the other". Unfortunately, even with the search function, I can't find a citation to confirm this.

If this understanding is correct, a paid member today could simultaneously enter one image in the members only free study (lasts all month), another image in the member challenge "Double Take" (this week), and another image in either exlusive open challenge, "Dolls and Puppets" or "Overexposed". A registered/non-paying participant could enter one image in either exlusive open challenge. Next month another members only free study opens, and each week shorter challenges open and close.

Is that correct? Here's hoping someone with more specific knowledge can confirm or else supply the right information.

Exclusive at DPC means one or the other.

A member can enter all members challenges, including the weekly members challenge, the monthly free study, and any other member challenges that pop up.

A registered user can only enter "Open" challenges, and must pick one of the two "Open Exclusive" challenges

This is described in the Help->FAQ area

"What's the difference between a registered user and a site member?
Registered users can participate in many of the site's features. They can participate in the forums, submit to and vote in open challenges, comment on all challenges, and much more.

Why should I become a site member?
Becoming a site member helps support DPChallenge, enabling us to continue to develop and expand the site. We offer our site members a number of exclusive features, and we're constantly working to expand that list. Among the benefits of site membership are:

No on will ever know.


Seriously, is simulated over-exposure in post processing acceptable? Camera settings can easily tell if the original was over exposed or not.

I really need to know answer to this.

You can over-expose in post processing is perfectly fine. I believe if your photo has a lot of details in the photo and you blow them all out with levels you may get in trouble for removing elements.

Thank you. Can you point me to an example that over exposed during post processing, without getting in trouble?

Original
Not of the entry but close. The original of the entry is on another hard drive which I don't have access to at the moment but this was taken during the same sequence and has pretty much the same level of detail as the entry had.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/41337/120/717105.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/41337/120/717105.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Entry

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/807/120/638306.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/807/120/638306.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This was validated during voting at the time.

Should we expect to see DNMC for high key images even with sufficiently blown highlights?
09/02/2008 12:30:27 PM · #61
All those who already submitted to 'OverExposed' (or are contemplating an entry now),

I see much less entries here as compared to lets say Abstract B/W. As for myself, I am deciding between a puppets entry (that I feel is more DPC friendly) and an over exposed shot (that I really like myself, but could generate less appeal).

Here's hoping the voting for this challenge wont be as shaken as for the B/W one.

Share away..

- your sentiments before the voting begins.. (why so less entries?)
- link to any previous related challenges.. (to get an idea of expectations)

and

- your score trackers.. (in ~12 hours, the voting begins)

The entries are growing ever so interestingly here:

Exclusive Open Challenge: Overexposed
Rules: Basic Editing
Submission: Aug. 27th - Sep. 2nd
Submissions: 152

I am having second thoughts about taking this one out and submitting another one to the 'dolls & puppets' one.. <100 entries.. J/K:-)

I am participating in this one (which also means I wont be voting in here to be fair), and I quite like my entry for someone who averaged below 5 in their first challenge. Heres hoping it will improve my PB...

I'm really hoping this isn't what qualifies as "effective" for overexposure on DPC. Simply having a white background is not going to garner a high vote from me if everything else is properly lit. I'm gonna be opening up a can of whoopass on those shots...

That will depend entirely on who you talk to ;) Some might say she hasn't had near enough exposure lol

I just like stirring things up 90 minutes before rollover and watch people panic.

IMO, this is NOT an overexposed shot...

So I take a picture and in Raw processing I increase the exposure to create an overexposed image. I'm guessing this is not a well received idea showing my scores.

3 comments already, so I can't complain. I did get a chuckle out of one that mentioned that the picture would have been better if it wasn't overexposed, lol, of course it would, but then it would have received a DNMC.

Oh well on to the next challenge.

Good luck everyone, this could be a long week.

I think the point of the challenge was to take a picture that actually looked better when it was overexposed - as if it was intended and on purpose to deliver a specific and high quality image.

Bingo. And a lot of photos in the challenge didn't do that.
