Our contests always revolve around some sort of theme. This month our contest theme is COLORFUL FLOWERS! What better way to start Spring than with fresh buds?! The rules are simple and entering the contest is easy... Keep reading!

The Rules:

  • Deviants may submit only one photograph to the contest. You must be a member of AnimalsPlantsNature to enter but anyone is welcome to join the group!

  • The deviation must be no older than April 1, 2018 (we want to see your new work!)

  • The deviation must be from the Animals, Plants, & Nature Photography category only!

  • The main subject of the piece should reflect the category you've submitted to. No miscats!

  • No photomanipulations. For the purposes of our contests, a photomanipulation is considered a deviation that has components from more than one file in it.

I don't normally photograph flowers but I don't think the rule "the deviation must be no older than April 2018" is particularly fair for those that are in the southern hemisphere. It's late autumn here and there's not many, if any, fresh buds to photograph, so to speak.

They do not need to be fresh, only have color to them. :)

I can't contribute. Text says I'm not allowed to use this process. Why?

Ah, typically our admins cannot enter our contests. You just joined though so I can make an exception for this month! Want to send me the thumbnail and I will manually add it? :D

Yeah, the admins have the ability to see the entire voting process in the back room so it gives a bit of an unfair advantage =\

Also did you mean to link something different? The theme is "colorful flowers" :D

OK! I posted a picture I just have taken today but when I posted to deviantart, the image wasn't as sharp as I wanted, so I went to muro to sharpen it.. the problem is now it no longer shows the exif data including date taken Face Palm emote

:O How come muro? It just looks like you usually use Photoshop and it's definitely superior to muro for sharpening an image xD
