      This is the invitation into one of the groups of the Amazing Image or 5 FAV flickr group series.

      This group is part of a series that invites some of the most amazing images found on flickr to create high quality group pools concentrating on a narrow topic in each group.






      If you click on the banners above you´ll see the large image view of the group. This is the central feature of the series. You may need to select the large size in the flickriver tool. Press the space bar to operate the viewer in its slide show display mode.

      In contrast to a normal flickr group the administrator selection of all images in the Amazing Image group series makes sure that all the images in the group have almost the same high quality as the photos shown above.

      Here the group page of the central administration group if you are interested in the complete series.
