Welcome to TOURIST POSTCARDS and GREETINGS. Greetings, as related to the tourist location.
The next selection of features will be made as they are either uploaded or when able.
Please upload images appropriate for this category. Images not suited for this group will be removed. Guidelines have been made clear about what should be uploaded.
Please upload only your BEST images suitable for purchase on a rack at a tourist location. Tourist postcards can be just about any image as long as they are a known landmark, including but not limited to national parks, monuments, well known places, landscapes, etc. Please make sure the image is recognizable or titled properly.
If the subject of the image is not easily recognized or is not the focal point, what you illustrate may confuse your audience. Please indicate the name of it in the title.
Judging will be done by these methods at any given point in time: (1) myself, (2) jury, (3) FAA membership, (4) contests, and (5) professional photographer organizations.
Images selected as features are judged on the following criteria: (1) composition, (2) clarity, (3) color, (4) use of light, (5) point of interest or main subject, and (6) print'ability. Digital alterations are allowed as long as they enhance the photo, not take away from the subject.
ALL MEDIUMS WELCOME
All mediums are allowed. Please be conscious of main subject and print'ability on professional papers. If the image is too dark, thou interesting, the dynamic of the image can be lost in translation (better for viewing, less for printing).
HOW MANY FEATURES SELECTED
Due to the discovery that images must be viewed and critiqued one at a time, decisions about how many features will be selected will be based on number of images uploaded each week.
ALL DECISIONS FINAL
Decisions about how many and what images to be featured are final. If your image was not selected, it is likely it either did not meet one or more of the elements as stated above or too dark for print'ability.
NO NUDITY OF ANY KIND
Young children learn from viewing contests and group images. Images of this nature will be removed.
NUMBER OF IMAGES
Limited to 2 of your BEST images each day. Features determined as participation increases.
Thank your for showcasing your work in this group.
