Read the rules of the group BEFORE you POST!!!!!

Deleting a LOT of photos in Architecture that do not even have a building anywhere in them.  

Architecture (Latin architectura, after the Greek ἀρχιτέκτων – arkhitekton – from ἀρχι- "chief" and τέκτων "builder, carpenter, mason") is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements.

Deleting a LOT of photos that have the DA watermark on them.
Deleting full color photos in the B/W section.

If you don't know where it goes, or it doesn't fit in a group, put it in the MISC area, that is what it was created for!!!  Misc = miscellaneous  Everything fits in that category!  LOL

The rules are very very basic, not much to them, just a few, and yet we waste a lot of time just taking care of the basics.  As we approach 10K members, we need to be a little more aware so things do not get out of control.

Thanks for your time,

Hello!! Please read BEFORE posting!!

First and foremost - WELCOME!!!

With being over 9900 members and more joining every day, I am sorry I can't welcome each member individually.

All except the featured group is automatically accepted, therefore, it is YOUR responsibility to follow these simple rules. We go through the entries every day and will remove or move those that don't abide by the rules or that are placed in the wrong groups. I.E. pictures of your feet in portraits, pictures of your dog in architecture. That being said here are some simple rules for this group...

1. We are a photographic group, therefore, your submission MUST be a photograph. Should go without saying but we have had some confusion in this. Also, it should be obvious that it is a photo, if there is so much "Photoshop" work that you can't tell if it is a photo it will be deleted.

2. ~No hate comments, only constructive criticism

3. Lately, we've been having a lot of submissions to Featured. Now you can only submit one deviation to featured every week. And all deviations to featured are subject to vote.

4. NO DA WATERMARK on your submissions!! Please, it destroys the aesthetics of the image. ~~ If you need a watermark, create one of your own, just like so many of our artists have done, and this helps preserve the copyright of the photo. None of the professional photographers use the DA watermark, they have their own and much better ways to preserve copyrights and avoid theft.

5. Nudity must be subtle and artistic. We have members of all ages and we must maintain an environment for everyone. In other words, NO nudity for nudity's sake.

6. Once your submission is in one of our galleries PLEASE do not move it to storage. It creates a void in the gallery that we have to go back into and delete one by one. I have had entire collections removed by an artist and spent hours going folder by folder looking for and deleting "deviations in storage".

7. DO NOT use our group to "SELL" your crafts. This is a photography group, taking pictures of an item you have for sale on etsy or any other site, is NOT to be posted in our group. It will be deleted and if it becomes a regular thing we will have to ban you from the group, sorry. I do not mean charging for your picture to be downloaded, that is ok.
