WELCOME! Please READ these rules BEFORE you post!!!!!

First and foremost - WELCOME!!!

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...

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.

#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 day. And all deviations to featured are subject to vote.

#4. 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.

#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.

- In short words, : the art or science of designing and creating buildings : a method or style of building. NOT bridges, NOT stairs, NOT statues.....etc. BUILDINGS!!! Inside of buildings if you can see some of the architectural aspects of the design, otherwise, miscellaneous or urban landscapes.

- one to one aspect ratio....since this is my forte, I am quite picky about it. A picture of a flower is NOT macro, unless the flower is very very tiny and the photo is very very big. In most true macro of a flower you can make out the individual pollen drops. Otherwise it goes elsewhere.

Nature Landscapres
- LITTLE to NO human aspects in the photo, no houses, no people, no roads, no buildings, etc. I have left a few in place that have a small bench, or old boat, but NO people. If it has aspects of our human culture, it can go in Urban Landscapes.

People and Portraits
- this is photos of PEOPLE....a photo of just your hand isn't a people or portrait, a photo of your feet, same thing. It needs to be a persons face at least or if taking shadows or silhouettes it needs to be obviously a person.

The rest should be self explanatory, and when in doubt, put it in the Miscellaneous, that's what it's there for.
It's always nice when DA hands out their Daily Deviations to someone, and wonderful that when I like one after browsing through the folder, I request it to be in our group and they allow it.  

But even more so when an active member of the group gets one......Lets all congratulate Shanea from :iconharpyimages: on her Daily Deviation for a wonderful portrait "Twistys Sister Pt2"

Twistys sister pt2 (halloween 2015) by Harpyimages

She had posted it in our portrait folder only a week ago and now it has been given a DD, so it has been moved to our DD folder.

CONGRATS again Shanea!!!

Hello! Thanks for the add :) I was browsing your group and it seemed like a good place to get some constructive criticism and didn't give off an uppity, elitist feel... I just take photos for fun. Once in a while I mess up and one turns out decent :P I enjoy taking photos of architecture and cars mostly, but my cat is also a personal muse of mine. :) Looking forward to seeing some great submissions from you all!
