Group Description

Every now and then, you see a photo on Flickr and think,"Damn! I wish I'd taken that!" Those are the shots we want to see. When inviting photographs, members should not only be thinking "Damn! I wish I'd taken that!" but also "Damn! That's a HIGH QUALITY shot!"

Group Rules

ONE: Please be sure you use and accept the correct invitation and awards for the group. If you post a picture to the group pool without a valid invitation you will be removed from the group without warning. If you rejoin and post another uninvited photo you will be banned.

TWO: Please be sure your picture's privacy setting is set to "Anyone (Public)". The tools we use do not work on private pictures and the admins will not manually look for invites and awards. Private pictures will be considered UNINVITED by us.

THREE: This group is open to anyone who has had an image invited by one of our members.

FOUR: There is a limit of 1 post per day, and EACH posted image have the group invite. Images that have not been invited or have been invited with an old invitation code will be removed by the group Admins without notice. Repeated posting of images to the group without proper invites will result in being banned from the group.

FIVE: Blocking any group Administrator of Moderator will result in banning from the group.

SIX: Reposting of images to get more awards is not allowed; such images will be removed from the group and repeat offenders will be banned.

SEVEN: Please respect the group and it's members by giving your awards at the time you post your picture to the queue. Don't wait until your image appears in the pool.

EIGHT: Illustrations, mosaics, collages and images that have very heavy manipulation are NOT ACCEPTABLE, even if they have been invited. Heavy manipulation does not mean no Photoshop but rather, no adding elements that weren't in the original image, all the elements must be photographic and original to the scene. PLEASE UNDERSTAND that Images that are 'made' do not fit into this group's accepted content. Heavily manipulated images, mosaics and collages while they can be beautiful, are 'made' and not 'taken' and therefore do not fit this group.

NINE: This group will not tolerate images that are offensive, inflammatory, derogatory, racist, pornographic or intended as ideological propaganda.

TEN: No Nudity (including artistic).

A valid invitation looks like this:

You are invited to display your image.
