...I need some clarifications on the rules.... POST processing.... so it's "OKAY" if done in the phone but not so on a computer.... ??? Or do I need help understanding how a panoramic is NOT post processing.... you are in fact letting the phone process two images together to make one nice wide image. If the argument is going to be that you don't do anything to the image but press the shutter button ONE time and the phone does the rest, can I not then also use the SMART CAM app on my 1020???

Not trying to be a jerk but every time I think I understand what's fair and what's not, I get stumped.



I am in favour of phone post processing.
I wouldn't do much more as crop or adjust lightning.

Let the discussion begin.

^^ Agree with that.
This is a mobile phone forum, not a photography forum, let's keep it simple

As simple as, if esato recognize the photo as made with a phone, it's okay.

Most important rule is "taken this month".
"Fitting the theme" is obvious but open to interpretations.
"no post-processing" was the hardest rule, people like to cheat.

Allowing apps is like updating the shootout. All phone's can do it and like Marly said; this is a phone-forum.
I don't know how to spot the computer-cheats, I just learned how to read the exif-data but as I've always done, I trust in your honesty.
