HDR photos - NEW RULE in Terms of Service

  • Hello everyone.
    We wish to advise all our members of a new rule in the Terms of Service, regarding HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos. You will find it as point #9 in the Photographs section at http://www.trekearth.com/terms.php

    Here is the new rule:

    9. HDR (High Dynamic Range) photographs - HDR images should have a photo-realistic effect with the sole purpose of raising the level of detail in a sky or shadowed area to the point where it keeps the appearance of a normal photo. HDR images which have a surrealistic effect or no longer look like photos will be removed at the discretion of the Moderators. This applies to HDR photos produced by software or by the camera itself.

    On behalf of the Moderation Team
