If I was to take a shot of someone and then use a bark texture to change them into something which looked like a living tree, would it really be breaking the rules to use a texture which is in a folder on my PC? and then to mount it on a background of a woodland scene which was still in leaf (out of season).
My thoughts on this is that the rules as they stand should allow the main part of the image and the creation of that image over the weekend. Some of the textures & backgrounds I have weren't even photographed by me, however the concept and creation of the final images gives me the copyright on the day of creation.
If all parts of the image have to be shot and composited together over two days then there just isn't sufficient time to get a decent image together and enter it, hence it's tantamount to banning them.
Here's a well known saying " Start an argument in an empty F'in room "
