All other folders are photography only.How do I Submit Art?Go to the group's Gallery page. From there, you have a couple options:Option 1:Select "Contribute to This Gallery" in the upper rightChoose your deviation you'd like to submitSelect the appropriate folder from the drop-down and submit!Option 2:Select a specific folder from the gallery you want to submit art to (either from the left side of the page or by scrolling down and selecting)Then click "Contribute to This Folder" in the upper rightChoose your deviation and submit!Folder Descriptions for Submitting Art:Please read the following on specific folder submission criteria. I've also provided some advice if your art qualifies for more than one folder following the folder descriptions.Featured Folder: your best work, the work you're most proud ofMonthly Theme Folder: dependent on monthly theme which will be described in folder description as well as group journalsFlowers: general flowers folder for flower-focused photosMacro Flowers: folder for flower(s) shown larger than in reality (macro)Flowers with Animals: any flower photography including animals. If a bee/bug/bird is in your photo of a flower, submit here - NOT the Flowers folder.Pre-Bloom: this folder is for flower buds etc. before a flower fully blooms. If a bud is the focus of the photo, submit here - NOT the Flowers folder.Post-Flower: fruit, berries, dead flowers - what happens after a flower is past it's primeFlower People: folder for photography including people and flowersSunsets: general sunset photography folderSunrises: general sunrise photography folderTrees: general trees folder. Focus is the tree as an entity.Leaves: displaying any type of leaf/leaves. Focus is the leaves.Bouquets: bouquets - does not have to include flowersOther Nature: any nature photography that does not fall under previously described foldersNon-Photography Art: any art of flowers, sunsets, and other nature that was created using a medium other than photographyAll other folders are not open for submissions.Folder Overlap:If there is overlap between folders, choose what you feel is most applicable unless specified otherwise. For example, a photo showcasing both a field of flowers and a sunset may be appropriate for a variety of flowers folders and the sunsets folder. Another example is a flowering tree. For these scenarios, ask yourself: do the flowers obstruct the sunset? Does the photo of the flowering tree include the whole tree, or is it close-up and focusing on the flowers? Use your best judgement to determine the focus of the photo - since the folders intersect, 'tis understandable there will be overlap.Reach out to the group or myself if you have any questions on the above rules via note or comment.Thank you!Davey

This group is for nature enthusiasts who enjoy plant life and skyscapes. We hold monthly themes and occasional contests. While the staples of the group are flowers and sunsets, we share nature pieces of sunrises, leaves, trees, and more. All mediums are accepted, although we do have a specific non-photography folder.

Well, here is the vote from the German jury:

“For all my dearest friends and watchers“ by BlueIvyViolet
“Jackstraws“ by wiwionart
“togetherness“ by MT-Photografien
“Another World“ by a-kid-at-heart
“Macro - Contest May 2019“ by Forgotten-homeland

No ranking intended and a bit sad I could only select five. Good work by the contestants!
