    @graefin: here in Manila, celebrating Halloween is considered a 'luxury' holiday. For the most part, only the middle-upper class society are the only ones who could afford to celebrate it.

    we do have a 'day of the dead' though.

    "photo not digitally enhanced"

    a little bit stupid - i´m scanning my negatives with silverfast software and i can enhance them like digitally while scanning with this software ...

    @h0stil3 - our apologies for the piggies - the user agreement allows us to use your shots for promotional shots for lomography while retaining your full ownership.

    To quote from legal:
    _With regard to material you include in a public album, you grant a non-exclusive, world-wide, royalty free license to modify, publish and reproduce said material solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting lomography.com._

    for more info, check out www.lomography.com/content/about/law/law_text.html#01 or www.lomographyasia.com/legal/sect.php - the agreement appears on registration, in case interested parties are asking where it is. This is standard procedure, similar to other community-based sites.

    The least compensation we can offer given this is you get to see your photo around the site! :D

    @totalgenervt - we're referring to photos that were manipulated to look like lomographs even if they're originally digital. hope that clarifies a bit.
