Question: Are we allowed to edit/enhance our photos? Or do they have to be purely "as taken" "un-edited" photos?

I believe it must be un-edited, could double check with Sha.

Good question.
In the past, we've tried to balance it out. Some individuals really loved to photoshop their pics to make them dramatic, and no one was really that concerned, their pics didn't always win even with the enhancements.

If you need to touch the photo up a little to brighten or darken, frame it up, or make small touches that enhance, I don't think it's really a big deal...on behalf of Admin, I can't see it being a problem. As mentioned, try and strike a balance--don't go overboard, use discretion, and hopefully that will be cool with everyone.

Thought you'd like that last one. I went and took a few pics of my car after washing it but somehow the only part of any of them that fit the sparkle or shine aspects on my old hatch was if you count that my fog lights are on in one of them.
