Hi Aktron,

I assume with remove, you only mean that you don't consider them for a prize? (that is a fair reasoning I guess, under the 'usefulness' principle). 

Tamara: I would suggest to leave it up to the jury, as long as they keep the criteria in mind. Every country can make their own judgement calls on what resolutions etc. If you want your nominees to win in the finals though, it would be good to keep the Featured Picture minimum criteria in mind (I'm sure someone can link them) and guidelines - but it should definitely not mean that everything lower than that should not be considered at all! A winning picture is chosed based on a combination of technical quality, usefullness and originality.

I do believe, if the detail is encyclopedically valuable and illustates something important about the monument (i. e. inside of the cupola of a church) then it should be preserved. We in WLM CZ however remove most of the details, because they do not fill this criterium. 


I also think it is up to you which resolutions you would like to accept and which not. Frankly - in every WLM participating country people have different cameras. As far as I know, WLM India has a low ratio MB/picture, while Germany have a superb one. So a simple "template" for all the countries can hardly be used.

Hi all,

We got a lot of photos which show monuments' details, so I don't know whether to point out to the jury to eliminate those or not? I mean, do the winner photos have to show the objects in whole?
The other thing is we got superb photos that are of low resolution (~1000x768) - should they be eliminated as well? The first round is over, with around 940 photos left for the main jurors to rate.
