This is a group of outstanding photographers from around the globe, and a gallery of fine landscape photography of the highest calibre. Feel free to start discussions here; it is a great way to make acquaintances and build friendships with others who share your passion for photography. Please post only what you consider to be your finest work.
(we also invite members to submit their "cityscape" images)
If you use any kind of manual focus lens and would like to showcase your work then please post your images here.
Please include some details about the lens you used and the camera it is on, if it is a modern digital camera or an old film camera - it doesn't matter, show us what your old glass can do.
This group is for only photographs taken with prime lenses. NB that we do ask you to include with each photo a visible i.d. of the lens used.
.....ONLY THE DARK WILL DO - images swathed in velvet tones as dark as the night.... suggestive, sensual or sinister if you please.....scintillating and sumptuous for certain but also the dark cragginess of the cliff face looming ahead... deep rich colour or gritty black and grey....
BUT - no porn, no torture, no blatant violence - and only 1 post per day (except by invitation)
SUBMITTED IMAGES MUST BE DOMINATED BY DARKNESS - PREFERABLY BLACK !!

"To photograph is to hold one's breath,
when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality.
It's at that precise moment that mastering an image
becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

To celebrate, enjoy and have fun with wide-angles and their special way of "seeing" the world. Each focal length lens in the wide angle arena can provide such special perspectives and interesting ways in which one (as a photographer) can relate to her/his sorroundings, people, architecture, nature and sculpture among many other subjects in an intimate, close and dynamic way.Please no digital.Keep it free of porn and enjoy the perspective! Anything goes, from 35mm to 8x10 formats, whatever is con…

Dogs - Man's Best ♥ Friends !!!

"The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for." - Louis L'Amour
A TRAIL, PATH, or ROAD MUST BE VISIBLE in all photos submitted to this group! Shots inside buildings will not be accepted.
I have decided to limit contributions to 2 per day. This will help give everyone's photos a chance to be on the front page.
This group was formed to showcase images that explore architecture in an abstract manner. Photos submitted should be visually compelling and dynamic showing how beautiful architecture is as abstract art.
Every week a theme will be posted
Take a photo related to that theme
include some bokeh
Post in the group& theme thread
If your photo does not fit the theme it will be deleted without notification.
All kinds of urban sites and building which have seen better days.
Toutes sortes de vues urbaines et immeubles qui ont connus de meilleurs jours.
Monochrome imaging can often help emphasize a subject's form and is therefore particularly suited to architectural photography.
This is an open group for anyone wishing to contribute B&W or monochrome photographs (digital or film) of architecture belonging to any era. Name of building and architect plus location will be appreciated.
We hope for good quality rather than quantity, and please do not be offended if not all of your pictures are kept in the group.
