Yes. However, that would probably not be as helpful as a second closer-up picture of one of the MOCs that shows some of the details.

That, however, is not allowed. From the rules: "You may edit your images digitally, but only to clean up the images for presentation." By this we mean cropping and sizing, adjusting the brightness, contrast, sharpness, or other techniques to better show the LEGO creation as it actually exists, rather than using Photoshop/GIMP trickery to create something that does not quite exist. Basically what you're suggesting is a collage of multiple (well, 2) photos. We only allow that in the case of showing an 'action feature' - e.g. a trap door where you show a small photo with it open pasted into a larger photo with the door closed. Other examples of forbidden Photoshop techniques for the purpose of the contest are erasing supports to make something look like it is flying, pasting in a partially transparent figure as a ghost, altering the color to give an element that you don't have in the desired color (or that doesn't exist in the desired color), altering a torso design to make a custom fig, etc. We want to see your mad building skillz (or customizing skillz in the custom fig categories), not your mad Photoshop skillz.
On a related note, virtual (LDraw or LDD) MOCs are allowed, but they must be actually build-able. E.g. no phantom connections, bricks intersecting each other, elements floating in air, unavailable parts/colors, etc.
Sorry, I probably over-answered that question, but I wanted to address related questions people might have about photo alteration.
