Who we are?
We are a group that aims to promote & collect all the beauties of water and all that surrounds it (aquatic life, aquatic plants, water & underwater scapes, etc).
Here will be included featured interviews, photographs, tips, techniques, tutorials, linked documentaries etc.
Everyone can suggest a fave.
Only members can contribute and may submit only 1 deviation per week (therefore choose your submissions wisely).
To promote the group, you may help by adding the group's icon to your main page journal by copy & paste the following " :icon#Aquaview: " without the "#" sign between icon and Aquaview.
The group reserves the right to accept or decline the submissions based on their quality and visual impact (either to the gallery or faves folder).
If your deviation is declined, please do not resubmit it, and submit others.
Usually if your submission is declined we'll leave a comment why we did so, but if this doesn't happen you may request an explanation (by clicking on the 'No Comments' link on your declined submission from the correspondence box).
Rules can be modified at any time.
(if that happens, this entry will be updated)
The group will be accepting only high quality photos, but considering the fact that in underwater photography it may be hard to obtain sometimes high quality photos, we will be accepting and photos with a lower quality, but they must contain an impressive visual impact.
You may submit only to the 'Pending photos' folder. If your submission will be accepted, it will be moved by the moderators to the corresponding folder of your submission (this way there will be no errors involved in choosing the right category by the contributors).
In the Featured folder will be published only the best works submitted in the group.
In the 'People', 'Rural and Urban' and animals folders: 'Invertebrates', 'Fishes', 'Amphibians and Reptiles', 'Birds' and 'Mammals' will be accepted only aquatic life related photos (within oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, ponds, etc).
In folder under the name "Documentary" where we don't put much accent on art, but on scientific measures.
Also there is a folder under the name 'If water didn't existed' where yo may submit tragedies caused by the disappearance of water.
Beside photography, we also have 2 folders for Traditional and Digital Art water related deviations.
