So here goes-

Can I use one of my pictures and use this thingy on my computer (if I can even find it again :wall: )to make the picture Black and White?

Yes, it's really the only way you can do it.

Digital adjustments are only acceptable if limited to minor cleaning work, levels, curves, colour, saturation and contrast work.

ImageI knew I should have not sent an entry in before I knew that Image

Image What's a CSC ImageImage

I entered my photo's into the STRB (Send To Recycle Bin) Image category and am sure they will get a commendation in the WWHT Image ( What Was He Thinking) category and possibly even a win a prize in the TWAGL Image (That Was A Good Laugh) category.

Hi!

Should we send an email for each photo we want to enter or must we just send one email containing all of our photos that we wish to enter?

It's entirely up to you, whatever is easiest. As long as you don't exceed 2 photos per category we don't mind. :lol:

For this year the team have decided that CSC (Compact System Cameras) will be judged in the Compact group. We will discuss for next year and any input from members and entrants on the way forward will be appreciated.
