It's All About Presentation (Mostly)
As more and more people start taking pictures of their nether regions on their iphones or posing myspace style in front of their HTC's - the competitive world of getting a Daily Deviation gets just that much harder... :B I kid. But... daily, I am bombarded with awesome suggestions (which I love) and I'm not complaining about. But there has to be a criteria of sorts, that sets an image above the rest.

A Note on Daily Deviation Features
At ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work.

Could You please tell me, where I should put needle felted figures? I always have problems with that :( Should it be in Needlework? Textiles? Dolls, Plushies & Custom Toys? Other?

Please help :)

Talty Artisan Crafter
That is always the problem with crafts, some things can be submitted to many galleries. I would say that for your work you can either choose:

Needle work/miscellaneous
Textiles/Fiber art
Dolls Plushies and Custom Toys for this kind of work [link]
And jewelry for well... needle felted items that are meant for jewelry, such as this [link]

Actually instead of submitting to only one, I would recommend you to submit to all of those galleries to reach a wider audience :)
