Welcome to Only Good Photographs!

Well here we go, I am taking the plunge and creating my own group. As my Flickr mentor & friend WildCardPoet taught me when I joined Flickr - "There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs. Ansel Adams" This group is dedicated to that ideal!

Limit 2Posts/day & comment 2/post. If you don't have time, that's ok; come back when you can browse & leave comments. Tasteful nudity ok, do not push the limit.

Group Description

Welcome to Only Good Photographs

In the words of the master - Ansel Adams -

"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs. Some photographers take reality... and impose the domination of their own thought and spirit. Others come before reality more tenderly and a photograph to them is an instrument of love and revelation."

This group is dedicated to his concepts. Please add whatever reality you shot tenderly with love and revelation. There are no rules on type of images - just good images of any type whatever they may be: photos, illustrations or video are all welcome.

We all can get better so I would like this group to be fun and for the members to comment on the photos here so we can improve. Two images per day limit (so I can keep up) and please comment/award on 2 photos for every one you post. Tasteful Glamor photography okay, no porn, violence or offensive images (my call). I will try as we get started to review every contribution to the group. As we grow I will need to ask for some help running things.

Feel free to add contests or topics for discussion. We will have a monthly award contest and a 5+ and 10+ award stream.

May showers Contest Winner - #34 "Ganzania" by Paul Wheeler"
Gazania


This was taken in his garden. I had picked as my favorite as well. Wonderful color and detail. He nicely composed with the central flower pistils and stamens off center enhancing the light by a subtle ring of shadow. The lines of the petals as well as the shadow draw the viewer into the point-of-interest POI. Perfect composition Paul!

+++Second ADMIN AWARD - "River Magic! by Paul Wheller"+++
I will select one of my favorites each month to feature here. This month is a photo from Paul Wheeler, who lives in Plymouth, England. I have know Paul for a year now and have been amazed by the quality of his work. His website is www.paulwheelerphotography.com. This photo is amazing. Wonderful detail, alive with color, framed well and a great leading line through the photo. He has blurred the water just right. You really need to view large to get the full effect.

River Magic!
