I haven't voted because I basically (sorta, but not 100%) agree with the rule. It wouldn't be unfair to me, for example, to try and compete with my point and shoot against people with good quality DSLR, extensive photography experience and training, and access to advanced photo-editing software. You run the risk of people entering extensively photoshopped pictures with the backgrounds taken out, distracting details cloned out, or Frankenstein works, where elements of different pictures are cut and pasted to create a new one - so that the final product is a far cry from the original shot. I don't agree that people vote on pics based on content only - I've seen many a picture in contests, even though the subject matter was great and had excellent potential, not get any votes because of lack of focus, poor lighting, or cluttered, disruptive background.
I didn't vote because I WOULD like to be able to edit shots a little more than is allowed. So in addition to cropping and lightning up a pic, I would like to be able to edit flash reflections in eyes and other surfaces, and enhance colours if needed.
