1) Between February 14th and February 28th I will accept nominations from the group of photos submitted (by name - see importance of #4 above) to be included in the final vote.
2) Only one photo nomination per member will be accepted, and you cannot vote for your own photos.
3) Nominations will be accepted by either PM'ing or emailing your selection to me. Please include photo name and photographer name in your nomination correspondence.
4) Only the Top 10 nominated photos will be included in the final poll. It is possible a single photographer may have more than one photo make it into the final 10. If ties occur, the photo which was nominated first (time stamp of the email or PM) will be selected - so get your nominations in early!

I only ask because the use of photoshop, color saturation and other 'tools' seems to becoming the norm in an effort to make photos look 'purty' ala Albert Bierstadt's romantic landscapes It has really gotten out of hand, IMHO, in the Sierra pic groups on places like flickr. So what kind of guidelines establish base-line artistic integrity for landscape or Sierra-subject photography here?

Nice to get some consensus just to level the playing field for one, and to see what kind of great pics the Sierra can provide without all the lipstick. As an example here are some of the rules from the "Unaltered Landscapes" group on flickr that might apply:
1. No post-processing allowed except for cropping and framing
2. No artificial monochrome backgrounds
11. No HDR, Orton, cloning, adding textures, IR, vignetting, adjusting contrast or saturation
Anyway, just some thoughts. Thanks for all your work on this site btw.
