NEW ADMINISTRATOR: Please welcome Nate (tpshrine), a photographer who is generally taking over the group's day-to-day administration. I will be sticking around a while longer while I work on getting back on line after so many illnesses. He will bring his own rules and style here. Once I can get back on, I will try to go through more of your pics too!

Group Description

We all have taken photographs that have become our particular favorites. They might be really beautiful or meaningful to us; they might resonate with a particular memory of a time or place...they may be accidental self-portraits of our REAL selves. These photos do not need to be technically perfect...just perfect to US.

This group was created as a place to share these special photos; our own PERSONAL BEST work. By posting these photographs, you will be sharing a special part of yourselves with the group.

All are welcome to post a maximum of 3 photos daily; please take the time to enjoy the other photos in the pool and to comment on those that you particularly like. Please do not post photos of animal cruelty, violence or nudity. Photos considered to be in poor taste or otherwise inappropriate for the group will be removed by the administrators. Please only post original photographs. Do not post screenshots, glamor shots, Second Life avatars, etc.

Below you'll find the codes for commenting on the pictures within our group. Do take the time to leave a comment on each other's photographs... after all, it is free and sharing out the good stuff is powerful... it can create a smile out of nowhere. :-) Please feel free to invite any photos seen elsewhere that you think should be included in our group.

HOW DO I SHARE A PHOTO WITH THE GROUP?

Easy! If you're a member of the group, add your photo to the group pool. (If not, join the group, because only group members can contribute to the group pool.)

The easiest way add a photo to a group is to go to the photo's page and click the "Send to Group" button between the photo title and the photo. Then choose the group you want to send it to, and you're done!

Only you and the group administrators can remove a photo from a group pool.

Note: If you share a photo that you marked as private with a group you are a member of, it's as if other group members have full access to that photo. They can add comments, notes, and tags. The photo isn't displayed for people who aren't members of the group.


PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT POSTING PICTURES OF CHILDREN OF ANY AGE. BE AWARE THEY ARE VULNERABLE TO BEING EXPLOITED BY PEDOPHILES!!!!!


HOW DO I POST A PHOTO IN A DISCUSSION?

Click a photo you want to add to a discussion and then click "All Sizes" if it is available above the photo. Choose the size you want. (Most people recommend Small so that the post you add it to won't take a long time to download.)

Scroll down to the HTML code near the bottom of the page, right-click on that box and select Copy from the shortcut menu. Go to where you want to paste the photo into the discussion post, right-click, and select Paste.

Group Rules

Please feel free to post images you have taken that you are especially fond of; photos that are meaningful or beautiful to you. If you like another member's work, feel free to comment on it. If you don't like another member's work, please either do not post, or be kind, courteous and helpful in your critiques. Praise is always welcome, and may be especially important to the newcomers to the group.

Photos posted to this group are expected to be a "Personal Best" and those that appear to be simply dumped here will be removed. If you continue to "dump" photos, you may be removed or banned from the group. You may post a maximum of 3 photos per day, but please be a bit discriminating and only post your "Personal Best" This group is for budding and amateur photographers, please only post your original photographs.

Please do not post photographs with nudity, violence, guns or any photo that appears to show animal cruelty--this includes any photographs representing the "sports" of bullfighting, hunting and cockfighting. This group is for budding and amateur photographers, please only post your original photographs.

Photos that do not meet the group criteria may be removed without notice. Repeat offenders will also be removed without notice. Remember, this is a family group. Please keep things in good taste.

This is YOUR group. Please feel free to make suggestions on how you would like to see it "develop". Being that I am new at this, feel free to message me on here.

Display as many of your favorite captures as you would like, but please don't "dump and run". Take the time to comment on and to enjoy other members' work, and feel free to invite others to join us as we all show off our PERSONAL BEST. Other than that, snap away!
