We'd really like to encourage everyone to participate in our new Critique project! :nod:

We've added a new folder to our Collections Gallery.

Members can now submit one deviation per week to our new Critique folder!

The idea behind this is that members looking for constructive feedback and critique can post to this folder to be critiqued by there fellow nature photographers!

So we're asking that you all get involved if you're able to and help out by giving critiques, advice or pointers to those looking for it!

Remember critiques can be given in the comments section for deviants who do not have subscriptions.

We think this will be a great way to help our members grow as nature photographers :nod:

Please read How to give a critique in FAQ #95: What is the Critique Feature and how do I use it?
and the dA Etiquette Policy

GingerJuju has written a critique guide you can view here

Declines on Submisions

Although we try our best to reply to all declines, due to the large amount of messages, it is not always possible to reply to all of them.

The main reasons why they are declined are because:

:bulletred: They are submitted to the wrong folder (ie. A flower picture to the Aquatic Life folder)

:bulletred: Domestic animals are NOT in a natural setting

:bulletred: Your deviations are NOT categorized as Photography> Animals, Plants and Nature or Macro - Nature.

:bulletred: Your deviation is a Miscat, Photomanip or over edited

:bulletred: Just because a photo is categorized as Macro, does not mean it will be accepted in the Macro Gallery Folder. We get many images that are not macro but have been uploaded as a macro photo.

:bulletred: The picture has too many man-made elements or man-made/people are the main focus. We allow man-made elements and people as long as there is more nature than the man-made elements.

Look at examples of what we will accept and decline right here: naturephotographer.deviantart.…

We do not like to decline submissions, however we will if they don't follow the rules. Please don't be disheartened! :huggle:
