Drag to set position!

davidlepnyc ADMIN March 24, 2014
I'm proud that we are not a group with 500k images. I take pride in knowing that each image is hand picked by myself or the groups co-founder. What we lack in volume we sure make up for in quality. We are a diverse group yet share one common goal, image excellence.

Group Description

This group is for people who have great pictures and would like to share them. Please add only your best pictures to keep the quality as high as possible.

Group Rules:

1) VERY FEW RULES. We realize people have day jobs or attend school and Flickr is supposed to be fun. Please use common sense and everthing will be fine.

2) Send us your best work. We will determine what should be posted. Waiting for an invite seems silly when you have an amazing image someone hasn't noticed yet.

3) Group Theme: We want the best in all areas to give the group depth and breadth. Landscapes, nature, architecture, cultural, abstract, B&W. Please stay away from macro shots of bugs, flowers and photos of your cat or dog unless they are unusual.

4) NO NUDES: This is a family / workplace safe group so that is kind of self explanatory.

5) Invite photos which you think would fit the quality and description of the group. Do a service to your friends by representing them with their best work.

6) No rude behavoir - There are people from across the globe on Flickr. Their English may not be perfect but at least they're trying. Feel free to critique someone's work but concentrate on the techniques so everyone can learn.

7) The daily limit is now 2 photos per day.

8) Group admins have the right to reject invited photos that are objectionable or just not up to the standards of the group.

9) PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO AWARD THE EXISTING POOL. FAIR IS FAIR.
