Group Description

This is a(nother) group for nature photographs. Entrance into the group pool is by admin invitation only, but you are free to submit pictures to the group pool, that's why there is no invitation thread.

For the serious nature photograph, there are just two rules:

a) the picture needs to be about nature,
b) the picture can have post processing, but should not completely alter the original scene, and
c) the picture needs to have 50+ favorites, meaning that a significant number of flickr users shares the opinion of it being a great picture.

What does "soft" sweeper mean?

Soft sweeper means that I am checking for commented pictures, and decide on a case-by-case base on whether or not I delete pictures posted without commenting others. I think the group pool is fine enough that some appreciation to other pictures can surely be done, right?
