    Correct color balance in RAW conversion. The red seems more vivid, because the background is really dark and create color contrast.
    It was a difficult day to take photos, due to rain and light conditions. I was holding my umbrella at the same time...

    That's what I was thinking. I think the photographers that shot in JPEG should be allowed to edit contrast/saturation. Just in order to be fair towards them, since those who shot in RAW can do it with impunity.

    I think that too, because saturation and contrast are relative settings and depends on camera procession. It's also possible to do that in camera parameters, but you have less control than shooting RAW.

    ...and I'm sure a large part of the entrants edit their pic despite the rule.

    I suggest this :

    • The photograph must be the original upload and not edited in any way other than to resize. Contrast and saturation adjustments are tolerated, provided that the changes are slight cannot be noticed by someone who didn't see the original picture. In case of doubt about the modification's depth, the organizer can ask for seeing the original picture and determine whether the picture can be submitted or not.
    Tell me what you think about it (and if I made any language mistake...)
