Rules. . .

:bulletred: All submissions are judged on all aspects of photo technicality - composition, lighting, noise/sharpness, originality, DoF, where the eye is led to in the photo, etc etc. Therefore, there are high standards in this group, and photos are frequently declined. If this bothers you, then this may not be a group for you.

:bulletred: As the group name suggests, we accept photographs ONLY! Heavy manipulated photos must go into the designated folder for those works. No compilations of many images into one are accepted.

:bulletred: One submission per month! You must be a member to submit.

:bulletred: Submissions into the wrong category are instant declines, no matter how good the submission may be - please take a moment to carefully submit it to the correct gallery folder. We also don't accept submissions to the featured folder.

:bulletred: No nudity, no violence/macabre/horror - implied or otherwise - no exceptions.

For submission guidelines, see our journal stunningphotography.deviantart…

Submissions expiring! Is anyone here?
HoremWeb Featured By Owner Edited Oct 17, 2018   Photographer
Yes, of course we are here. Unfortunately when we cannot agree whether a work is welcomed or not, it may expire.

To be honest, in Upon The Cliffs case I don't really know what's the matter. I didn't vote because of a personal reason and now I cannot see (due to permission settings) that others did vote or not.
Stuzal Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2018  Professional Photographer
Sure. I didn't mean to to be rude. Just curious.
HoremWeb Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2018   Photographer
I am sorry if you felt that I took your request as rude, it wasn't my intention. :) As there are so many dead groups around it is no wonder that you have your suspicion when a work expires. But we are up and alert :D
