Group Description

This group is about landscape photography with an application of textures resulting in artistic compositions. Only high quality images are accepted. Landscape is a general term that includes rural scenes, seascapes, cityscapes, etc. No portraits, macros, or fantasy images are acceptable. Only manipulated photos are accepted, no painting or design.

A word about texture art: The addition of textures in post-processing is meant to enhance the quality of a photograph by way of aesthetic and dramatic appeal. Simply adding texture to an image is not sufficient. The texture must add that "something special" which takes an image to another level. Textures can make a good image outstanding. However, textures may not necessarily improve a bad image simply by their application. The art is to know how much texturing to apply and to deftly blend the elements together.

If your image has not been accepted to this pool after your submission, it may be due to one or more of the following reasons:

1. There is no texture applied to it in post-processing.
2. The texture is not prominent enough.
3. Your image is not of sufficient artistic quality.
4. The composition is excessively bland or banal.
5. Your image is not a landscape shot and may therefore be more appropriate for one of my other texture-related pools (see below).
