    Winners and selected finalists must provide high resolution digital files not smaller than 3500 x 2300 pixels, in 300 dpi, CMYK Tiff or Jpeg format.
    No 8MP, cannot enter... and the photographer must know how to convert to CMYK Colour Space...

    Went to shoot activities at caltex near my home. Recvd a from a Caltex employee, and I walked in to explain about the competition. To my surprise, the supervisor/manager evn the employees of Caltex are not aware of the competition. They asked for any evidence for the competition.

    I went back again with a print out of the competition..then they were and ..gave a green flag...

    thru my D70s, I can get only 3008*2000 pixel wide picz..any help on 'How to increase the resolution to 3500 x 2300 pixels?

    cheerz

    What kind of LUBES?

    How do you tell if an employee is off duty when he/she is in UNIFORM?

    And what the heck is a SupaStrika?
