Group Guidelines

Make sure before you submit that your photo is GOOD, if you dont think it's good, we wont either!

The standard of work here is very high, if your work isn't accepted it is because either:
- The image isnt regarded to be of a sufficient standard (that doesn't mean that your photo is bad)
- A similar image or location is already in the gallery
- You have too many images in the gallery

If you wish to know why an image is rejected please politely request feedback. You will not get feedback otherwise, not everyone wants their images critiqued. Some requests for feedback may still go unanswered if the contributors are busy.

- Please keep the number of similar images you submit down. For example I could submit 150 Dartmoor images, but 5 would be more appropriate in ensuring that other areas of our landscape arent drowned out!

- Try to submit images of locations where possible. Wider views are preferable to silhouettes of trees for example, but if you think an image is of a high enough standard and belongs here, please submit it.

Above all, this group is for sharing art, it is not a venue to boost ego's or show off, so please treat the group, members and contributors courteously.

Here are some examples of why images are rejected:
- They are over edited
- They are underexposed
- They are snapshots of sunsets
- They are poorly composed/arranged/balanced
- The light is not suited to the subject
- The subject itself is not interesting or does not represent the British landscape
- It's a good shot but its a heavily over photographed location and your image doesn't stand out.

Only reason I ask is that things keep expiring. If you're the only person that's active then I suppose that's going to happen.
What a shame.

There is another Admin active as I occasionall see single votes on works processing. People have lives to live and D.A seems to be taking a nose dive lately. I've considered leaving myself.

May I ask why do you accept pictures that weren't captured in the UK?

I just had to take a quick look through the submissions to see which shots were not UK based and noticed the first ones to jump out at me were the groups founder, so i'm guessing thats why their there :)

Hi

Please do not take offense at the following (I'm bad with words lol).

I know what beginning photography is like.  It takes a lot of reading and researching and learning the tools of the trade. You really need to understand light and exposure and how your camera works.

With nature photography its also about understanding natural light and the weather as well as the dedication of scouting out a spot and returning to it numerous times to catch it at the right moment. (If you've ever heard the phrase right place at the right time you'll know what I mean:)).

In relation to why your shots were rejected from the group, for my part these shots are run of the mill 'snapshots'. There's no fantastic natural light to make the scenes, the shots are slightly underexposed and the composition of each could be improved.

When working with nature - the best light of the day is the first hour after/before sunrise/sunset. This is called the 'golden hour' where light is soft, warm and shadows are softer, (not so dark that it ruins the contrast of the shot). You also get added effects such as mist and fog depending on the time of year which can add atmosphere, mood and feeling to the scene.

My advice would be to practice getting out and about and revisiting the scene in better light conditions after learning about exposure and how to use the natural light :)
