Help!! We need more higher-res photos!

See that big wide picture at the top? Flickr calls that a cover photo. They recommend making it at least 2048 pixels wide if you want it to look good.

Group Description

For lovers of photos taken using only natural light! So basically, no flash shots.

Images containing candlelight, street lamps, car lights, etc., are okay as long as the lights are only a minor part of the overall lighting instead of the main lighting.

The subject matter can be just about anything -- people, places, animals, buildings, plants, flowers, etc. Photos can be taken at any time of day and in all types of weather.

Other examples of natural light sources include lightning, Saint Elmo's fire, the Aurora borealis and Aurora australis, celestial bodies, planets, asteroids, comets, stars, galaxies, etc. There are also many living and non-living subjects which have natural illumination such as fireflies, fluorescent phytoplankton, fluorescent rocks, etc. These are all allowed in the group. Sorry, no fireworks shots. :)

Natural looking HDR images are okay, strange looking ones will be removed.

Please limit any post-processing to levels, curves and contrast adjustments. Images that show fake coloring or fake "natural" lighting will be removed.

No large or distracting logos or other type of advertising on the images.

When posting images to the group, please add a brief description of the type of light and weather conditions you encountered while taking the shot.

Thanks and have fun with the group!
