Welcome to TEXTURES AND CREATIVE EFFECTS.
Features will be selected as they are uploaded or when able.
Please upload 2 images appropriate for this group. See many of the top images in the feature file. Other images are also beautiful and may not have been selected due to time in selecting features. Looking for images that have used as overlays, underlays, creative effects, filters, etc. that have enhanced the image.
NOT LOOKING FOR
Not looking for images that demonstrate actual textures, such as a picture of a brick sidewalk, pebbled street, rusty bucket, etc. If you can create the look of a rusty bucket using a filter, overlay, underlay, etc. .. that's fine.
Please upload only your BEST images. Textures and Creative Effects images can be just about anything as long as they demonstrate the use of textures, filters, creative effects, etc. to enhance the image.
JUDGING FOR SELECTION
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) use of texture, filter, or creative effect, (3) color enhancement, if applicable, (4) use of light, (5) point of interest or main subject, and of course, (6) print'ability. If your image is too dark, it may look great with uses of effects but may not be a good candidate for printing.
ALL MEDIUMS WELCOME
All mediums are allowed. As long as you can demonstrate the above, your image should be allowable.
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 criteria or the administrator has been too busy to select images.
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 per day.
Thank your for showcasing your work in this group in order to help others grow.
