One Submission per Day, per Folder, per Member!
Nature Much Closer
Think opposite of ‘Scapes, and anything that is close up to Nature.
This would include closer ranges to, close-ups or macros of:
single trees, tree branches, pine cones, leaves, flowers, blades of grass, rocks, feathers, water drops, nests [without birds], seashells, etc.
Water is allowed as long as it is not a waterscape. It must be a close up.
Water drops are allowed as long as they appear to be natural, and appear to be in a natural setting.
If any food colouring is used, it becomes a Conceptual Piece, and the water is no longer natural looking, and it will NOT be accepted.
If the water or drops are turned red in Photo Shop, it will NOT be accepted.
We do NOT want to see manmade containers that this might be experimented in, appearing in the image being submitted. If it LOOKS natural, it WILL be submitted.
A water drop that was sprayed on a flower did not get there naturally, but since the water is natural and looks natural on the flower it WOULD be submitted.
Water drops in bowls, where the bowl is visible, or on top of CD’s or other distracting manmade objects will NOT be accepted.
This folder also includes close-ups of:
nature depicted in still life, such a vases of flowers, and other artistic arrangements of nature, like pumpkins, fruits, nuts, pinecones, shells, etc.
In still life, it is understood that there is a setting, such as a vase, or a table, or a step, etc., that is housing the presentation. Submissions of such still life containing these other items are okay, but should be minimal. We still want to see the nature, first and foremost!
If there is an animal or insect in the deviation, please submit to the most appropriate of the three animal folders.
No human beings.
The only very occasional exception might be a hand holding a flower, but if more than the hand is seen, it won’t be accepted. IF the hand is bigger than the flower, or the hand is overwhelming the flower in some way, it won’t be accepted. It will be up to Admins. discretion. We really want to see the Nature!
