Please see group guidelines if you have any questions.

Please click on the About tab for info, invitation codes, rules, etc. If you post uninvited photos twice, you will be banned.

Please do not repost an image if it has been rejected by the administrators, even if it has been invited. We do so for various reasons, including overexposure, underexposure, lack of focus, busy background, etc.

This group discussion is for members only.

Group Description

*** PLEASE READ BEFORE ADDING or INVITING IMAGES to the group, thank you. ***

*** Excellence Hall of Fame ***

*** Random Excellence. ***

Excellence in Floral Photography (Invited Images Only). Get yours at

**This is an invitation only group for Excellence in Floral Photography. The group is designed to showcase Flickr's finest floral photographers.

**Only those images that you regard as EXCEPTIONAL should be invited to join. We want the best of the best!.The flower or flowers should always be the main subject; leaves, grasses, seed heads (such as dandelion seed heads), landscapes and images with insects as part of the main focus will not be accepted.

**Images that do not meet the administrators' standards of excellence will be removed from the approval queue without notice, so please invite photos using your greatest discretion.

**Members whose images have been invited to the pool are requested to comment on two photos already in the pool. You don't have to, but it would be nice.

**NEW RULE as of June 2008--Any photo invited as part of a mass or multiple invitation will be subject to immediate removal. In other words, please invite to this pool using a separate comment. Thank you.

We would like you to carefully consider the images you invite to the pool. Please remember that "very good" is not "excellent." This pool is only for excellent photographs of flowers.
