Welcome on #Compelling-Photos!


Hello, dear members of :iconcompelling-photos:! :dummy:


We want you to know that we do not accept every picture here. Think about your submissions and only submit your best ones. That's why we reduced our
submission limit to 1 deviation per week.

Second, READ about what picture belongs to what folder! Pictures not being submitted to the right folder will be declined!


:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Featured:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Our 'Featured'-folder is not a 'well, I do not know where to submit to.. I'll submit to Featured'-folder.
Our featured-folder is for the best of the best. So please do only submit your pictures if you really think your picture is worth it!

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Surreal:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Pictures submitted to the surreal-folder are on the crossover of reality and surrealism.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Animals:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
As the name says it, pictures submitted to this folder contain animals.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Nature:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Nature pictures can be landscapes, waterscapes, sky pictures, flowers, trees etc.
It's widely spread.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Conceptual:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Important: Some people submit a flower picture and say 'the birth of life'. That's not a great concept. We search for well-executed concepts.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Macro:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
We do not look at the official macro guidelines ("The classical definition is that the image projected on the "film plane" (i.e., film or a digital sensor) is close to the same size as the subject." wikipedia.org) which means that also 1:4 or 1:2 pictures can be a macro shot.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:People and Portraits:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Everything concerning people photography is welcome here.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Still Life:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Same as 'People and Portraits', but only with Still Life. That can be fruits, necklaces, clocks, etc.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Mature Content:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Pictures which are signed as 'Mature Content Pictures' (no matter if +18 or lower) MUST be submitted to this folder. No matter if it has got a concept or is monochrome or is square. It has to go there.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:Others:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
Submissions to this folder do not fit into the other folders.

:new:

We abolished the "Square"- and "Monochrome"-folders, because they were quite confusing.






If you are unsure about where to submit to: Look at our gallery.

Submitting to the right folder does not mean that your picture is automatically approved!
We have got a high level and want to exhibit only the best ones.
But please do not feel offended if a picture of yours is declined. Ask why it has been declined and we'll try to give you a little feedback.
When you're asking about why your picture got declined:
*Be polite!
*Ask with a full sentence.
*No commands like "Tell me why".

*Please also remember that we have a lot of pictures to look at everyday (most of them are not accepted) so don't spam the group with questions if all your pictures are declined.


Have a great day! :heart:

Hi, everyone. I do write this (again) because my group really needs new contributors.
You do not have to be a great photographer for this, you just need to submit art you love into this group :aww:

This is all!
You will get features in the group for that. :hug:

The only thing you have to care about is that you have to be active once a month, which means when you are not active for a month, I will make you a normal member again. Simple, isn't it? :)

Just say you want to try it and I will invite you. ;)

Anything you could do to help would be greatly appreciated!
