“...and then, I have nature and art and poetry,
and if that is not enough, what is enough?”
~ Vincent Van Gogh

:bulletred: Guidelines: :bulletred:

Joining as a member is not automatic, admins will vote after checking your gallery to see you have at least 3 images suitable for this group.

We try to portray nature as realistically as possible and in natural settings, so please remember not to submit fantasy animals, or anything else that is too fanciful. Thank you.

We ask that you follow a few simple guidelines:
  • deviantART's policies
  • All media is allowed including photo manipulations however these must also meet our other guidelines so they must be as realistic to nature as possible and no fantasy images.
  • Fractals that are clearly recognisable as something in nature
  • All work must be nature oriented
  • Only fruits and vegetables in natural state
  • Nature MUST be the focus, man made objects and structures should not be.
  • Birds at feeders and birdbaths are allowed
  • Pets indoors and outdoors are allowed
  • All work should be original
  • All work should be your best

The following will not be accepted:
    (We will always give you a reason if we decline your image)
  • Fantasy creatures
  • Blurred images that require people to pay or watch to view them - we can't check if your image is appropriate for this group
  • Cartoon style drawings
  • Animal cruelty, injured or dead animals
  • Animals eating other animals
  • People in art or photography
  • Cuisine - Food that has been cooked
  • Man-made structures as the focus
  • Animals and birds that are obviously caged - we shouldn't be able to see bars, fences or cages around them
  • Cemeteries
  • Work in progress - only finished work please
  • Watermarks and signatures which obscure the pictures
  • Comics
  • Abstract art
  • IR Photography
  • Mature content
  • Please remember we are not a documentary
