    What you may do to a photo:
    • Crop and/or resize an image.
    • Adjust the level or curve values.
    • Alter the colour tone of the image (gradient maps, photo filters, colour balance, etc).
    • Car body colour change (all stickers/design features must remain, see "Remove Items" rule).
    • Adjust brightness, contrast, exposure, shadow/highlights.
    • Enhance shadows or highlights (dodge and burn tools in Photoshop, for example).
    • Add noise and/or diffuse glow.
    • Add a post-game tilt-shift blur, or apply a motion blur to a stationary Photomode shot.
    • Make use of Layer Blend Modes.

    • Previews should be no larger than 400 pixels along the longest side - be it vertical or horizontal - and should not have more or less effects than the full size image.

    Wouldn't stand a chance in a Unlimited comp but I think Paint.net will allow me to produce something decent for this. So here's the first entry :D

    First and Final entry

    [​IMG]

    A edited version of one of my "Banner Shots" entries.. I had one with "McRae/Grist" in the window but despite the awesomeness it adds it would be illegal :lol:

    It could be better, but I'm not a pro when it comes to image editing. Original, unmodified image can be found here for reference.​

    If you're think a judge would enter in his own theme, I'm not the judge. :p

    Also, can someone ask Terronium-12 to promote both 2.0 and UEC to this week's Weekly Rewind? :p

    I'm not if this one's allowed. Would an edited version of a previously entered picture be allowed?

    And, wow. Wasn't expecting such a great turnout. Back when I tried noooone entered, except for two people. :eek:

    Yours is a previously entered picture too? Justin hasn't said anything about that so I guess I'm ok then...

    Well, seeing as he did too I think it's ok. I personally don't see a problem in that, here or in unedited, as long as you are the original source

    To settle this "previously entered" thing, I am allowing it as this comp is still a soft opening. ;)

    It's quite possible, I guessing possibly low-ish shutter speed, and manual focus?
