Since this is the technical contest, I'll have to check with Todd and Tom since they set the rules. If it's something that could be done in the darkroom, it would be considered okay. Bethe and Fred would know since they both are experienced in the darkroom.

These are what we have on the rules. We've turned down others in the past so....in all fairness, please re-apply. In the "themed" contests, any amount of PS'ing is allowed.
