About Object Sky
It's difficult to put into words what this group is all about but an attempt has been made below.
For colour photographs of objects set against a sky/clouds. The image should be uncluttered so that the object is the main focus with an abundance of sky and/or clouds as the backdrop. The appearance of the subject must be clean-cut surrounded by plenty of space.
WARNING: Guideline intensive group If you like s t r e t c h i n g group guidelines this is not the group for you. There's loads of rules so here are some visual examples:
Most subjects are acceptable but they must be uncomplicated and the frame uncluttered giving the images a clean cut appearance with a substantial amount of sky/cloud.
No silhouettes, the object(s) must be visible.
Types of images that are excluded from the pool. This list has developed according to whether an image fitted the ambience/mood/vibe of the group:
people, flocks of birds, plants and trees with too many leaves/branches, flowers with too many stems/leaves, burnt out sky/cloud, reflected sky/cloud, fireworks, sunsets, sunrises, moonwanes, night skies, horizons, skyscapes, landscapes, seascapes, sunbursts, flying aircraft, contrails, masses of overhead wires, girders or iron.
The pool should show straightforward colour photography so no black and white, monochrome, duotone, heavy manipulations, vignettes, light experiments, mosaics, montages, collages, computer graphics, borders, titles, signatures or drawings/paintings.
Images that don't fit the guidelines will be removed from the pool. If one of your images has disappeared you may find the explanation in the group description above. If you don't understand why your image has been removed please contact one of the admins by Flickr e-mail.
If your image doesn't fit the Object Sky guidelines then there are numerous other sky/cloud groups on Flickr. Links below:
