Group Description

This group will feature NATURE or still-life photography transformed into a painting.

Your picture must START AS A PHOTOGRAPH and then be DIGITALLY PAINTED by computer.

There are many programs and plug-ins that allow us to get a "painted" effect. All results LOOKING LIKE AN ACTUAL PAINTING are welcome here. We want to showcase the many styles that are emerging in the field of digital photo painting. We are aiming for pictures that "look like a painting". It will be to our discretion whether your work fits this group.

►►►Pictures not fitting our group rules will be denied without contact or comment◄◄◄

With many other groups that allow these types of artwork, we want to stand out as a limited theme of NATURE ONLY. So our focus will be on landscapes, flowers, and other natural objects. We will allow natural arrangements (still life, flower art),as well as some small amount of fantasy.

Please Follow these guidelines:
- NO people, unless very small
- NO large graphics [ signatures are fine ]
- NO machines
- NO animal portraits
- NO buildings (exception for Barns). Please post such pictures in our specialty thread
- NOTE: We will allow, at our discretion, objects such as benches, fences, bridges, walkways and planting containers that are RUSTIC and preferably small.

Group Rules

This group will feature NATURE photography transformed into a painting. This means real-life pictures turned into a painting- like effect.

FOCUS WILL BE ON LANDSCAPES, FLOWERS, AND OTHER NATURAL OBJECTS. Please note: people or animals as a small part of a scene are OK [if they are not the main focus of the scene].

Also welcome:
- natural arrangements (still life, flower art)
- the occasional made object as part of a scene or a still-life arrangement
- some small amount of fantasy.

We have chosen to leave this group as public. But we are set up for group entry by administrator approval. This is to help keep the group to our theme.

We reserve the right to delete without notification what we feel does not fit our theme. If you are deleted, please do not take offense. Your picture is very likely a fine work of art, just not the theme we are looking for.
