Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) entries
Posted By: Buddha Jones, 12-27-2007, 11:50 AM

Hello all! I am going to make this a sticky post in hopes that I can get all of you who have submitted pictures to the Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) and have had them accepted please post a couple of them here and please link back to your gallery so we can see your work. We have so many incredible photogs on this site I am curious to see what Pentax considers your best work.

Thanks!

John, they have general guidelines on their website as to what work they're looking for.
Images that stand out with a bold and interesting subject with complementary, natural-looking PP work stands good chance of being accepted.

Mike, congrats on the guitar - a lovely abstract capture.
Great work coming through.

Hey all,

Great shots here to those who've had them accepted. I'm thinking of submitting a couple and have set up the account, etc. The rules for submission state dodge and burn ok but moving around of pixels not. Filters and such should only really be "in camera" i.e. it seems from reading this that you're not supposed to do much PP other than cropping and resizing.

So, it's got me a little confused. I have a fairly simple PP software, and dodge/burn is not one of its features. So what do I do if there's sensor dust in a shot I wanted to clone out...not OK?

Also, what about monochrome? Do they want the conversion in-camera or is that OK to do PP?

I've submitted these questions directly to PPG, but wanted to get the real skinny on what is acceptable to do in PP from those who've had pics accepted.

If this has been discussed, I missed it in my searching. Just direct me to the page I need.

Thanks,
Of my five shots above 4 are HDR images with additional processing in Photoshop and the last one is a b&w conversion done in Photoshop, so obviously pp in itself is no reason for an image to be refused.
I think mostly the guideline is there to warn against a mistake that a lot of people who first get into digital PP make: taking a not particularly good (underexposed, unsharp, overexposed, badly framed etc.) image and trying to turn it into something nice by pp. I think that is not the best philosophy of pp anyway: pp should be done to improve already good photos, not so save photos that aren't.

I have also noticed that the shots that get accepted to PPG are generally the more bold and simple ones. Nice shots with more subtle qualities have less chance to get in.

The Tetons Made It!

I was really rooting for one of my Teton pictures to make it and am very pleased that this one did. Thanks to all who voted for it. Susan

Made it into the double digits

Congrats to everyone here. This was my 10th accepted photo. I'm happy to be in the double digits!



It was hard getting the family all together for this portrait, but I'm glad I was able to pull it off. ( - couldn't resist.)

You both should always be proud to get into the premier collection. That landscape of yours is beautiful Jim and Carrie, your photos of children are wonderful.

Lots of great shots here everyone.

well i got another one in the other day. This is one of my old works with the K100D and the FA 50... It seems like the only thing i can get on there are head shots and alligator. I need to change that asap.
