COLORADO URBAN WILDLIFE PHOTO CLUB

MONTHLY CRITIQUE SUBMISSION INFORMATION

  • Two categories at each meeting - THEMED AND OPEN
  • Maximum of 4 images total and no more than one themed image
  • Non-competitive environment with a constructive critique
  • Submit only jpeg images with a maximum image size of 1024 X 768 pixels
  • Email files one week before the scheduled meeting to uwpcimages (click to reveal address). No exceptions.
  • Send themed category images in an email titled 'themed images'
  • Send open category images in an email titled 'critique images'
  • If your image is selected to appear on the club website, the website caption will be derived from the file name. Be sure that your name and the image title as you would like them to appear on the website are included in the file name. Use only letters (a-z and A-Z), numerals (0-9), dashes (-), underscores (_), and the single dot before ".jpg" in file names. Avoid using blanks. Use dashes (-), underscores (_) and capitalization to indicate word boundaries (e.g. Bob_Dean-Trees_In_Snow.jpg or BobDean-TreesInSnow.jpg). It is acceptable to include other information that identifies the image in file names, but you risk the possibility that this information will be misinterpreted by the webmaster. Although it's unlikely, the image BobDean_TreesInSnow_27583.jpg might end up on the website with the title "Trees in Snow 27853."
  • Descriptive information for each should be as follows:
IMAGE IMAGE TITLE SPECIES LOCATION CAMERA LENS EXPOSURE DATA POST PROCESSING ENHANCEMENTS
Critique 1
             
Critique 2
             
Critique 3

  • Exposure data should, for example, include f/stop, shutter speed, ISO, any exposure compensation, and any filter information.
  • Post processing enhancements should include those things beyond simply cropping, sharpening, and noise reduction such as HDR, panorama work, color enhancements, exposure changes.
