First of all I want to give a huge thank you to all you guys for being part of this group. (No don't worry, we're not shutting down)

Right now I'm waiting to upgrade us back to supergroup until AFTER we switch to Eclipse next month. I'm not sure how groups will be doing on the new site so I don't want to jump into supergroup again until I can get it figured out. So right now just be sure to keep an eye on this space  for an updates.

I'm also debating reviving the iPhotograph facebook page. Would there be any interest in that? Do a lot of you spend time on Facebook? It's on my list of things to do so we'll see!

13 years strong and 18k members later, you guys are the best! Let's keep it going :)

What does it take to have your work featured by iPhotograph?

:camera: :pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase:camera: :pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase:camera: :pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase:camera: :pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase


The iPhotograph group receives a lot of submissions. If every one of these were accepted then it would flood the inboxes of everyone who watches the group and so people would not pay attention. The iPhotograph galleries aim to showcase some of the best talent that deviantART has to offer, providing entertainment and inspiration to photographers around the world.

Each submission including those by admins is stringently reviewed and voted on by a team of admins. It takes 5 votes before a decision is reached. Nothing is guaranteed, and only the best and most appealing shots will be accepted. There are no hard and fast rules about what will or will not be accepted to the iPhotograph group. We pay attention to composition, lighting, creativity, focus, depth of field and other technical aspects. For example, in a wildlife shot soft focus and overexposure may not be fitting, however, in portraiture these may be desirable qualities. Each submission is assessed on its own merit.

Why does iPhotograph not automatically provide a one sentence review of each shot? Simply put, this would hardly help anyone.

If you want to know why your photo was declined please don't hesitate to ask. Upon receiving a request for a critique, we assume that you are mentally prepared to have your work pulled apart, which can be hard sometimes. and one (or more) of the iPhotograph admin team will write a critique. Depending on the shot, a meaningful critique can take anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes to write. Ideally, such a critique will give you a lot to work on, as it will not only highlight the weaknesses but also the strengths of the shot in question so that you will know which aspects of your photography to improve in the future.
It may take a couple of days for a reply. Remember that groups are run by people whop spend their spare time to keep a group running. Groups are not paid employment and everyone has their own life outside of deviantART.

Not only does iPhotograph want to showcase the best and the brightest of the deviantART photographic community, but the iPhotograph team also wants to help people grow and develop their skills as a photographer. That is why every person who asks for a critique on a declined submission, or accepted submission for that matter, will receive one. After all, if someone is not going to ask for critique and ways to better their shot what is the point in taking the time to explain why their shot didn't get accepted?

If you just want every submission you post to a group to be accepted then iPhotograph is certainly not for you. However, if you want to belong to a group, which will deliver the finest quality photographs to your deviantWATCH list and will try to help every member reach their potential, then iPhotograph is certainly the group to join.

Thanks for the invitation! I feel honored. I'm sorry I let it expire. Sweating a little...

I'll join if you still want me to but honestly this group seems above me.

Could you please tell me why this photo was declined??? I submitted it to the to the "Black & White" Folder. It has 93 favs. You don't even have the decency to leave a comment to why it was declined. DO NOT critique me or think that you can help me improve my skills and knowledge or motivate me to go further and bring out the best in me. This is what I went to Art School for, which was taught by highly trained professors. I am also over 50 and have been into photography since the late 70's. I have many years under my belt.....

This is the 3RD time I have joined this group, only to be disappointed everytime. I should have known better than to give this group a 3RD chance. Either my work gets declined OR it expires. I AM DONE!! This group is either FIXED or you all just pick YOUR FRIENDS! This group is VERY bias, disproportionate, closed-minded, prejudicial, or just unfair. Either way, I'm out....I will NEVER join this group again!

PS...I know you will hide my comment so no one will know just how BIAS this group REALLY is.....No worries though, it WILL show up in other places.....

Nice contrasts but it's blurry and the crop is too narrow -in my honest opinion- That is why I declined.

You may haven't read our rules (the third time) in which we stated that if asked -nicely- we provide critique! If you would have read them you would have realised that this group may not be the right one for you. I'm sure you'll find a group that'll suit you better.


-disclaimer: personal statement is following-

In the end I want to tell you - not in the name of this group, but personally - a good artist isn't defined by age, or education, or whom they have been trained by. Many good artists never even have been to art school! A good artist is defined by their sense of aesthetics, by their ability to look for the unusual and trying to see common objects from a new perspective, or even create completely new worlds! But above that all, a good artist is defined by a good amount of self-criticism, humility and the never ending urge to outdo itself!

-personal statement is over-


I hope I can show our members that we support any artist who is willing to learn! And we love to provide them with our experiences. Because we also learn from them! :heart: :pinkBummyPhotographer: by MenInASuitcase

Your first line said it all..."In MY honest opinion"...Blurry, I disagree, crop too narrow, also disagree. I see on your profile that you are still a student. Maybe you have not learned yet that ALL Art is subjective.

Quite honestly, Your group is the only one I have EVER had an issue with. I wasn't even a member for the 3rd time until someone from your group welcomed me months after I joined, even after I left, so I joined again-what a mistake that was. Seems like your group is way behind on welcoming new members.

YES, I did READ the rules! And it DID seem like a nice group that I would have enjoyed. But because of people like you who are the type why so many members steer away from certian groups like yours.  I am no means the best photographer and have NEVER acted as such. Photography is an everlasting learning experience. Maybe you haven't had THAT class yet.

And as far as your "disclaimer:"...yea, that is taught in ART 101. 

You know NOTHING about me nor do you know the many subjects I have photograph throughout the decades or even my future ideas, so your opinion or judgment about me is so much in left field, I doubt you will EVER catch that fly ball. I am ALWAYS open to learning new things, but I rely on Senior members, members who have more years under their belt and making my own mistakes only to further my determination to craft my skill.

I am an Admin of 3 groups. I would love to be involved more, but I do work, so I only have so much time to spend on DA.

The 3 times I was a member, as far as I can remember, your group has NEVER been good to me.

Like I said, ART is VERY 
subjective, so your opinion of my work is being blown off of the my palm of my hand like a piece dust.

Please have some respect and just leave me alone!

I am sorry, but I have to agree with MoonshineTora. Enlarging the photo, there is not one hair on that dog that isn't blurry. Not considering that in a portrait shot as that the eye should be in focus, and it definitely is not.
The crop might be nice for a picture on the wall, but if you try and put that on your desktop I can guarantee you, it is too narrow. There is a "rule of thirds" for a reason.

I'm sorry if you feel offended, but we only answered your question for a critique (Question was " ... tell me why this photo was declined?"), and reminded you of the rules when you said "You don't even have the decency to leave a comment to why it was declined". I want to add here that you edited your comment after to say that you didn't want a critique. That was not part of the comment MoonshineTora answered to.

I would've been happy to answer you. And I'm sorry for not welcoming you in the group, but we have a lot of new members every week, and I'm honestly too busy to welcome everybody, critique every work AND vote, just while I'm studying and working at the same time... we're doing this in our free time as well.


Edit: and by the way, as "ART is VERY subjective", I think we can vote and have a different opinion on it than you. But thank you for giving you point of view. 

Otherwise, I hope you have a nice evening.

Cheers,
Fireaquila
