One of the things about DA is it's sheer size....and just how much is on this site and how many people. Another thing is just how much photography actually slips through the cracks on here, that goes unseen, unnoticed, and falls away into the abyss of the Nature Photography category.
What I have done is scoured high and low, searching for nature photography which I feel exhibits the best of the best, however, these images MUST BE relatively unknown as well. They must pay attention to exposure, composition, lighting, and show nature in all it's glory. I wanted photos that left you, the viewer, with an impact! Images which inspire, images which you would hang on YOUR walls, images which, when you view them, they leave an impression, and images which you learn from.
These are the images which I feel deserve to be seen, recognized, and if I was in charge of handing out DD's, these are the images which I would award with that. So join me, in viewing what I consider,
