Hi all!!

I've logged back on after a LONG time, I know.....
and it's sad to see the group is dying!

I created the group to spread pictures of our beautiful natural world that we live in and want it to stay alive!! There is some amazing talent out there!!

If you would like to help keep this group running, comment down below if you are willing to become a contributor!!

In order to become a contributor you must:

- be able to log on to DA at LEAST three times a week
- be willing to accept/decline posts and sort into the categories
- provide a full justification as to why posts are declined

Will be looking for at least 3 contributors so let me know if you'd like a position!!

Much love,

More Journal Entries




Please familiarize yourself with our gallery folders and where to submit your work: the-great-outdoors.deviantart.…

:bulletblue: Two deviations can be submitted per week.

:bulletblue: Please only submit pieces that are obviously outdoor.

:bulletblue: Contents of the Featured folder are chosen by the admins.

:bulletblue: If you want feedback, please leave a comment in the deviation submission process saying that you would like feedback. Our group gets a lot of traffic and we don't always have time to leave feedback.

:bulletblue: We accept zoo photos as long as unnatural elements aren't included, like the bars or glass of an animal's enclosure. However, the exhibits must be outdoor; indoor exhibits will be declined.

:bulletblue: We aren't an elitist group, but we reserve the right to decline pieces if we think they lack artistic quality, don't fit in the gallery, or if we simply don't like them. If we decline something, that isn't your invitation to resubmit it unless we specifically tell you to do so. We recognize repeats and if we declined them once, we'll gladly do it again.

:star: We decline the following:
-- deviations submitted to the wrong folder, or deviations that have multiple subjects that don't go in a specific folder, regardless of quality
-- nudity or implied nudity, sexually-themed pieces, etc.
-- man-made subjects that take away from the natural feel of the piece
-- anything close-up that shows no evidence of being outdoors
-- urban pieces
-- photos/drawings that have writing on them
-- infrared photography
-- pieces whose subject is of poor quality
-- photomanipulations
-- over- or under-exposed photos
-- anything that has been excessively edited to the point of looking unnatural
-- animal sex, violence, and/or death

:bulletblue: All traditional pieces, regardless of subject, must go in the Traditional folder. Likewise, any digital piece, regardless of subject, must go in the Digital folder.

:bulletblue: If, for whatever reason, you encounter a problem within the group, please note us and discuss the issue in private. We will do what we can to rectify the problem.

:bulletblue: Please don't submit the same thing to more than one folder. If you're unsure of the category it belongs in, ask an admin. If one thing is submitted to multiple folders, it will all be declined.

:bulletblue: No rude or inappropriate words or behaviour will be permitted.

Have fun, be respectful, and feel free to join!
