2007-11-08 [sequeena_rae]: o.O Painting over something is not a technique of traditional photography, unless Photography involves using a brush :p
2007-11-08 [Jitter]: A brush Squee? xD Not when I studied it xP <3
2007-11-08 [sequeena_rae]: Not when I studied it either o.O;
2007-11-09 [Araglas]: Moira!!! that is awesome!
2007-11-09 [Citrine]: thanks. :)
2007-11-09 [Araglas]: They all are awesome!
2007-11-10 [Cia_mar]: cool!
2007-11-10 [Jitter]: Cia aren't those picture also added in Reference pictures? Since you're offering those as free stock I don't think it's fair to enter them in a contest. I already denied pictures in the reference wikis because they were entered in contests. Let me know if you wish to enter with them so I can remove them from the reference wikis.
2007-11-10 [Cia_mar]: yea they are.....ok i was not aware that it be a problem.....gi
2007-11-10 [Jitter]: Thank you :)
I had to pick one of my fire pictures too to keep as my own before I donated them ^^;
2007-11-10 [Cia_mar]: understandable
2007-11-10 [iippo]: Sorry, I'll just delurk a bit: why is it not ok to enter something donated to reference pictures? It's still Cia's work, after all... *missed something*
2007-11-10 [Viking]: Hmmm...I may have to enter this one...
2007-11-10 [Jitter]: Yes it is still her work but since it was donated for free use (as stock) on this site, I don't think they're up to be entered in a contest. It makes some weird sense to me but if you think it is unfair I could change the rule... I just find it more suitable for a stock image to remain a stock image :/ Not sure.
2007-11-10 [iippo]: I don't know, that's why I asked :) I don't really anything about image stocks, I've never done any or really looked at any stocks so I don't really know anything about them. I trust you on it :)
2007-11-10 [Cia_mar]: i think i understand the reasoning for it, because if the same contest ends up with 5 entries that all used manips of the same stock, then it would not really be fare...at least that is how i am understanding Jitter's ruling in this
2007-11-10 [Jitter]: Yeah actually that's one reason I don';t think they should be allowed. About the original photographer using it though I now have asked the rest of the Reference pictures team to give an opinion :)
2007-11-10 [sequeena_rae]: This contest isn't about manipulating stock though. And Cia is the owner of the pictures, she should be able to do what she likes with them o.O
2007-11-10 [Jitter]: ok then forget what I said :P
2007-11-10 [sequeena_rae]: Nooo :P Opinions are good :P
